Saturday night three Newport
young men were injured in an
automobile accident on the Coven
try road about two miles from
Coventry villane. Edmund Richard,
Kenneth Somerville and Walter
Mitchell .started about ten o'clock
on a ride to Coventry. Mitchell
was driving his father's Ford car,
and the three boys were sitting on
the front seat.
None of the three can teli ex
artly what happened, but the car
rounded a curve at this point and
Mitchell lost control, possibly
striking soft gravel. It ran over
a hundrefl feet in the giass, up a
bank and turned turtle pinning
Richard and Somervile under
neath. Mitchell was thrown and
was the least injured of the three.
Somerville is badly bruised about
the head and face, some front
teeth knocked out, his shouldor
and log are bruised and also his
hand and arni. He was restine
as comfortably as possihle lust
night, and is beine cared for by
Dr. Longe and Miss Eva Dorella.
Richard's injuries are mainly about
the head, surfare scrutches and
bruises. He has not as yet fully
regainod conseiousness and it is
yet too soon to determine whether
the impact of the blow may de
vclop other troubles. He is at
