Mary Boldt, 16-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Boldt, R.R. 1, Vineland, was instantly killed on Saturday night when she was struck by a car driven by George Knight, 28, of Vineland Station. The unfortunate girl was walking along a country road with Muriel Bowers, a girl friend. Miss Bowers was unharmed.

The two girls were on their way to Muriel Bowers' home. They were walking north on the road, which is south of Vineland, and were keeping to the left hand side of the road, facing oncoming traffic. Miss Boldt, who was walking on the inside, was struck by Knight's car, which came up behind them, but the car missed Miss Bowers completely. Police say that the left side of the car struck the girl, although Knight had thought that she was on the right side of his car.

Knight appeared before Magistrate H.D. Hallett Monday charged with careless driving. He was remanded to Oct. 25, and freed on $1,000 bail. Provincial Constable Gordon Collins of Grimsby investigated.
