Aurora, Ill., July 5. -Three persons were killed and one was injured when a Burlington freight train struck an automobile early to-day near Shabbona, III. Dr. H. P. Greely and wife, of Lee, and Mrs. C. Richardson, of Chicago, were killed. C. N. Richardson, of Chicago, was taken to a hospital, but there seems to be no chance for his recovery.
A clump of trees at the intersection of the road and the track hid the approach of the train from Dr. Greely, who was driving the automobile.
