Shelbyville  Baby  Dies  in  Accident
          Ronald Ray Carpenter, five days old, near Shelbyville, was injured fatally in a traffic accident Wednesday just 23 days after his brother choked to death on a nut.  The baby was hurled from the arms of his mother against the dashboard of his fatherís car as   Charles Carpenter drove along Ind. 219 north of Batesville when the Carpenter car collided with another.  On June 22, before Ronald was born, his 10-month old brother  Mark  died at Shelbyville after choking on a cashew.  Ronald died in James Whitcomb Riley Hospital here several hours after the accident in which his mother was hurt.
