THREE INJURED IN SUNDAY ACCIDENT
Car Parked At Side of Road For Repair
Is Struck By Two Other Autos.
Mr. Poland was driving
west on the pike when he was forced to stop at the side of the road on account
of a puncture. There was no tail-light on the machine and it could not be
seen. An automobile in which Morris Miller, Verlie
Bass and Robert Hale were riding, was close behind
Mr. Poland, when he stopped and they were followed closely by the automobile in
which Lodus Kuhn, Leo Bass and Raymond Murrel were
passengers, the men all being in the same party. As the car driven by Mr.
Miller approached the Poland car, another car passed going east on the road, and
in going between the two cars, the automobile driven by Mr. Miller scraped the
fender of the Poland car. The second automobile, driven by Mr. Kuhn,
however, crashed into the rear of the Poland car, the driver not having seen the
car on account of the tail-light not burning.
One wheel was torn off
the Poland car and the auto driven by Mr. Kuhn was also damaged. The
second car was towed to this city, where Mr. Kuhn and Mr. Bass were given
attention by Dr. F. E. Bass. Young Kuhn suffered a fracture of the rib and
Bass received a deep cut in the leg. When the men left Poland he had
informed the that he was not hurt, but when they returned to the scene of the
accident they found him suffering great pain. He had been struck in the
abdomen by the fender of his own car. Dr. Charles Tindall was called and
after attending to the injury took the young man home.
