Struck by an automobile while on his way to a grocery store, Warren Moody, 8 years old, 719 North Street, was killed Sunday afternoon on West Washington Street, Indianapolis. With his brother, Samuel, 10 years old, the Moody boy was sent to a neighborhood grocery store on an errand. The boy was waiting an opportunity to cross Washington Street and suddenly darted into the street directly into the path of the car driven by John Eaton. Warren was caught on the bumper and carried several feet before he fell onto the pavement. He died several minutes later. He was the son of Ernest Moody, a former resident of this community. His mother died a short time ago. Surviving besides the father and brother, Samuel, are four sisters, Joyce Marie, Edna Bernice and Nema Olga, at home, and Mrs. Alma Miller. Funeral services were held at the home at 10 o'clock, Tuesday morning. Interment in the cemetery near Barnard.
