What came near being a very se?
rious ncchlent occurred about 8
O'clock Sunday evening when an au?
tomobile filled with ladies and chil?
dren ran into an electric light post
on West Liberty street near the
Ryttenberg residence. The negro
driver stated that in some way the
steering gear had become jammed and
he was unable to turn it and prevent
the collision. He did not know that
the steering wheel would not work
until it was too lu?e to put on the
brakes in time to stop the car before
it struck the post.
The escape of the occupants of the
car from serious injury was little
short of a miracle. In the machine
were Mrs. Berg, Mrs. Wynne, Mrs.
Myerson, Mrs. Love, Miss Klein, two
small children and the colored driv?
er. All of the occupants were badly
shaken up and frightened, but none
were badly hurt. Mrs. Love had her
hand and arm cut by the wind shield,
which was broken. The car was
pretty badly damaged, the front
springs and axle being bent and the
lights windshield and other parts of
the front of the car being smashed
In the collision. The automobile was
a big E. M. F. and was owned by
Messrs. Berg, Myerson and Wynne of
the Consolidated Mercantile company.
The car had been sent to the garage
on Saturday to have the steering gear
repaired and this was thought to be
In good condition on Sunday, when
the party went out to Pocalla, from
which placo they were returning when
the accident took place.
