HABERSACK, Mrs. Lorraine L. Clark (also Melinda and Gina Habersack)


A 25-year-old Bowling Green mother and her two young children were killed yesterday in a two-vehicle accident on Route 220 at the southern outskirts of Bowling Green. Dead are Mrs. Lorraine L. Habersack, wife of E. James Habersack, 397 Bowling Avenue, five-year-old Melinda and one-year- old Gina, who died in the emergency room of Memorial Hospital as a team of doctors worked to save her life. The mother and other child were pronounced dead on arrival at the local hospital. Members of the Bowling Green Volunteer Fire Company used an air chisel to remove the mother and two daughters from a foreign-make car which was rammed by a tractor-trailer rig of a Crites Transfer, 905 Glenwood Street. The driver of the rig, Richard E. Wiley, 21, of RD 3, Highland Drive, Cumberland, was examined at the local hospital and released. He was reported to be in a state of shock following the accident at 9:46 a.m. State Police said the Habersack car was headed south on Route 220 and was some distance behind a car being operated by Thomas E. Smith, 51, of LaVale. The rig was being operated north by Wiley who lost control of the vehicle on the wet roadway. The rig struck the left rear fender of the Smith car, spun around and slid over into the southbound lane and pinned the Habersack car against an embankment. An investigation is being continued, according to Trooper Larry Tracey, who said charges are pending. He was assisted in the initial investigation by Cpl. James A. Lough. The victims of the crash were taken to the hospital by the Cresaptown and LaVale rescue squads. Mr. Wiley had hauled a trailer load of insulation to the VEPCO plant in Mt. Storm and left the loaded trailer at the site and was returning to Cumberland in the rig at the time of the fatal accident, police said. A native of Barton, Mrs. Habersack was a daughter of Harry and Lois (Green) Clark of Barton. Besides her parents and husband, other survivors include a sister, Mary Jane Clark, Barton, and her paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Clark, also of Barton. The bodies are at the Boal Memorial Chapel in Barton where friends will be received today from 7 to 9 p.m. and tomorrow from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. A mass of the resurrection has been scheduled for Friday morning at St. Ambrose Catholic Church in Cresaptown.
