Norwich, Oct. 2 --- The first fatal automobile accident with a woman driver in this city occurred about 4:30 o'clock Saturday afternnon at the intersection of Broad and Main streets, the "busy corner."
Timothy D Anthony of No. 18 Piano street was walking south along Broad street and had apparently started diagonally across the intersection toward Bramer's drug store, when a touring car, driven by Mrs. Carl D Tompkins, a new driver, rounded the corner and struck Mr. Anthony. He was thrown several feet in front of the car. The left front wheel passed over his body and hte rear left wheel dragged him several feet until the car was stopped. A crowd of men returning from the Dairymen's league meeting pulled the unconscious man from under the car, placed him in the tonneaur and he was driven to the hospital. Life, however, was extinct before he reached that institution about three blocks away.
Mr. Anthony was 77 years of age and for years was engaged in the grocery business from which he had retired. He was a feeble man, with poor eyesight. His remains were taken to the home of his daughter, Mrs. Frank Beekman, from whence the funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon, the Rev. R L CLark officiating.
