When Auto Crashed Int? Ills Ruggy.
Skull Fractured, Shoulder Hrokcn.
Thomas lt. Kol th, one of tho mosf
prominent farmers of Oconoe, was
seriously injured last saturday night
about 9 o'clock, when the buggy In
which ho was riding was struck by
a large Marmon automobile driven
by Henry F. Parker, of Anderson.
The car and buggy were going In tho
same direction, and it ls stated that
the driver of tho car, discovering be
would bo unable to pass tho buggy
on the left side, endeavored to pass
on the right, crashing into tho buggy
and knocking it and Its occupant
over an embankment some 30 feet in
height. Mr. Keith received a frac
ture of the skull and a broken shoul
der, the skull fracturo ranging, we
aro informed, from a point, toward
the front of the hoad almost to the
base q|_tUo bram- lils lujuries are
"considered as very serious Indeed, if
not critical. He was given medical
attention Saturday night at Seneca,
and was taken to the Anderson Hos
pital on the first train Sunday morn
ing. Mr. Parker was badly bruised,
but no bones were broken. He, too,
was precipitated over tho embank
ment, and the car he was driving is
said to have been pretty badly used
up in the wreck.
Tho accident occurred between
Seneca and Clemson College, on the
curve in tho road where the bid road
bed of the Southern railway is used
as a section of the new highway. It
has often been spoken of as a very
dangerous point in tho new highway
system of our county.*
From the Anderson Mall of Mon
day wo clip tho following statement
in regard to tho unfortunate acci
"According to persons who arrived
after the accident, Parker said that
in rounding the curve his lights did
not shine on the road, and as he
straightened out tho lights foll upon
tho buggy. 'He was driving fast and
saw that ho would bo unablo to pass
tho buggy on tho left hand sido, so
attempted to out back of lt on tho
right. Tho bank gave way Just as
the car reached the buggy, tho front
wheels striking tho buggy and
hurling both buggy and automobile
down a HO-fool embankment*
"Parker was thought to bo fatally
Injured nt first, and was not brought
to Anderson, but was taken on to
Seneca. Mr. Keith was brought to
Anderson and placed in tho Ander
son County Hor ?Ital. He is a man of
over r>0 years of age, and though his
wounds aro very serious he is
thought to have a very good chance
for recovery. He has been in a semi
conscious condition since ho was
brought io Anderson, and his condi
tion, according to hospital reports,
remains unchanged. Parker is re
ported as being much bettor. It
seems that no bones in his body wore
broken and his injuries consist main
ly of bruises and shock."
Frlonds in Walhalla wore indeed
sorry to learn of the accldont to Mr.
Keith, who Is an old Walhalla hoy,
being a son of the late Col. and Mrs.
M. C. Keith. Ho is well, known over
Oconoo, and there aro hosts of warm
friends who will join with us In tho
hope that tho gravo fears as to the
ultimate results of his injuries will
prove groundless.
Mr. Keith is a brothor of Mrs. W.
H. Moss, of Walhalla; Mrs. J. R.
Anderson and Jas. H. Keith, of An
derson, and William R. Keith, of
Pastors' Conference.
The Pastors' Conferonco of tho
