TRIB. REPORTER'S . AUTO
' KILLS MAN
John G. Delong, 611 East 44th
street, a reporter for the Tribune,
driving an automobile, smashed
into the wagon of William Hol
dren, teamster, 2969 Wentworth
avenue, at Indiana avenue and
The impact of the collision
threw Holdren from his seat on
the wagon. Delong's machine
ran over him.
Before any of the spectators
could move, Delong jumped from
his machine, picked up the uncon
scious Holdren, flung him into
the machine and was off.
Delong took the injured man
to the Mercy hospital. The head
nurse asked Delong what had
happened to the man.
"He fell from his wagon," said
Delong. "I saw him lying on the
street as I passed in my machine
and picked him up."
Then he gave a slip of paper
on which he said he had written
his name and address to the nurse
and disappeared. ,
William Holdren died of his
injuries at the hospital two hours'
later. The police were called in.
The nurse could not find the slip,
of paper given her by Delong.
Today, the police' traced De
long to his home, and accused him
of having run over Holdren and
then lied about it at the hospital.
Delong admitted everything.
But the police did not arrest him.
Coroner Hoffman, who is a good
friend of the Tribune's, was kind
enough to vouch for Delong's ap
pearance at the inquest
