Tlie suit was Instituted at Rules
Mondai evening in the circuit court
by Miss Rebecca Carskadon. Thus
far her declaration has not been filed
and just what it will contain has not
been made public.
From what can be learned of thc
case she sustained bruises on a lower
limb in the wreck, which, at th? time
she did not consider serious.. She
remained at home a number of days
and thought herself well, but she
became lame and nervous. ;I>ater
she began teaching school at' Wll
sonburg. but had to give up the
work on account of her nervoug con
dition. She sustained a fall and
continued to grow worse. Her at
tending physician after examination
gave It in his opinion that a nerve
nad been so badly injured in' the
wreck that she would never recover.
The suit is the result of the con
dition she alleges. It will be some
months before the suit will be tried.
