Peggy Smith, 14 year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Smith, Fruitland, and a brilliant young student who attended the Saltfleet High School, sustained fatal injuries when she was accidentally struck by a motor car on the highway near that place on Monday afternoon. The girl was returning from school at the time and had just alighted from the school bus. She is said to have run around the rear of the bus and apparently did not notice the oncoming car. She was conveyed to the hospital but passed away from her injuries about an hour afterwards. The driver was not held. It is understood that no inquest will be held.

The young girl had been awarded a gold medal for special proficiency in her studies and had secured the highest standing in English of any pupil in the county of Wentworth.

The funeral was held this Thursday afternoon.
