Sharon Kay Lee, 9 years old, was killed and her cousin Shelia Lee, 9, was seriously injured Monday when the bicycle they were riding was hit by a car on US Hwy. 1 just north of the Bunnell City limits.

The accident occurred at 12:15 p. m. at the intersection of US Hwy.1 and State Road 13. The two children, Sharon Kay, riding on the rear fender, and Shelia pedaling, were returning from the store. They were riding in the grass median and attempted to cross US 1 when they were struck by an automobile driven by Randolph Dammas, 68, of New York.

Sharon died instantly of a broken neck and Shelia was admitted to Bunnell General Hospital suffering from a broken left leg and multiple cuts and bruises. Cynthia Lee, 10, the dead child’s sister, was riding another bicycle behind the two victims, but was not injured.

The children were visiting with their paternal grandmother, Mrs. Roberta Lee, Bunnell. Sharon and Cynthia's parents are Dallas Lee, Patrick AFB, Cocoa and Mrs. Jean Haas, Summerville.

According to Patrolman Don Butler, Traffic Homicide Investigator, no charges have been filed. Dammas and his wife, Lisette, were enroute to South Florida for a vacation. Mr. Dammas was admitted to Bunnell General Hospital for observation.

Also surviving are three sisters, Cynthia Lee, Bunnell, Vickie and Jessie Hass of Summerville, Florida; two brothers James and Franklin Hass, Summerville; and maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Homer Hackney, Daytona Beach.
