JANICE KAMINSKI Young Woman Is Killed In Accident Janice Kaminski Dies in Wreck on Highway 42 Escort Also Injured After Car is Hit by Station Wagon MANITOWOC—Janice Kaminski, 21-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Kaminski of 1801 Madison St., was fatally injured shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday when her escort’s car was struck by a station wagon driven by Arnold McDonnell, 42, of 435 N. Seventh St. The accident occurred on Highway 42 on a sweeping curve just south of the Cape Cod Inn. The young woman was pinned under the overturned car of her date, John Sosnosky, 22, of Rt. 2, Two Rivers. Together with about 15 onlookers, county and city police uprighted the auto. The girl was dead before being admitted to Memorial Hospital, County Coroner Dr. Theodore Teitgen said. The coroner also said an inquest would be called as soon as the injured could testify. He attributed death to a skull fracture and other injuries… ,,,Sosnosky and McDonnell suffered only minor injuries. A passenger in McDonnell’s car, Robert Lawrence, received a leg fracture. Returning From Date The two young people were returning to Manitowoc after an evening dancing and listening to entertainers at a Two Rivers bar, McDonnell and his passenger, Robert Lawrence, 36, of 103 N. Fifth St., Manitowoc, were driving to Two Rivers. Sosnosky, Dr. Teitgen, and an eye-witness to the accident, Harold Conrad, 26, of Rt. 2, Manitowoc all said McDonnell was driving on the wrong side of the road. McDonnell, a former Youth Center custodian who now operates a grocery store, said he thought he was in the correct lane. He refused in the presence of witnesses at the hospital to submit to an alcohol blood test. Sosnosky told police he and Miss Kaminski decided to visit a Manitowoc café before going home. (On the way to Manitowoc, we were singing and harmonizing,” the youth told police. “I noticed this car come along at a high rate of speed in our lane of traffic. I said to my girl companion I was going to take to the ditch but the other car was on top of us before I knew it. I was driving 30 miles an hour." Admits 13 Beers Interviewed at the Memorial Hospital, McDonnell related to police an evening of bar-hopping which began just after he closed his grocery store. He admitted a (Continued on Page M-17) Woman Killed (Continued from Page 1) total of 13 drinks to police—all glasses of beer. In the course of the evening, he met Lawrence and at 1 a.m. the two decided to take a ride to Two Rivers “for no special reason.” He told officers he believed he was in the proper traffic lane, but added he pulled to the right when he saw headlights approaching. The fatal smash-up nearly became a three-car collision. Harold Conrad told police he was driving…(line not readable)…car approach on the wrong side of the road. “I pulled over to the right so I would not get hit,” he said. “The car ahead of me and the car coming struck. I applied the brakes—something gave—I could not stop.” Conrad’s car slipped between the two accident autos seconds after they collided. “I stopped as soon as I could and ran back. There was a man lying on the pavement. The (sic) I blinked my spotlight to warn the next car coming.” It was county traffic police car with Patrolmen Edward McConnell and Frank Schomel. They radioed the accident to the city police, who dispatched the ambulance and a wrecker. The Kaminski girl was freed from under the Sosnosky ca with the help of 15 other motorists who happened along after the accident. City police called for the Melhaner ambulance which helped move the four injured to the Memorial hospital. They also notified Mr. and Mrs. Kaminsky of the accident, and called the Rev.

They reported the accident to police immediately. An engineer at the nearby plant of the Wisconsin Public Service corporation also noticed the tail light burning after hearing the crash. Police LieutenantWalter Herman and Officers Eugene Koebke, Howard Rezach, Ray Jackson and Harry Kasten, responded to the call with the department’s first aid boat and after rowing out to the partly submerged car secured a chain around the rear end by which the wrecker later pulled it to shore. Kopotic was found seated behind the wheel after the machine was beached. Coroner Dr. Theodore Teitgen examined the body and pronounced death due to drowning. He said no inquest will be held. Police Chief James Kuplic said the exact cause of the accident has not been determined. He pointed out, however, that there was no ice on the street approaching the bridge and no marks to indicate that the car had gone into a skid before crashing through the railing.
