horse attached to a surrey containing Mr and Mrs B S Haggard and
daughter and Mrs Wheeler Haggard was frightened by an automobile
driven by W R Thomas Wednesday
morning and a serious accident was narrowly adverted. The
carriage party was standing in front of the office of The News
on Main street and the horse took fright at the approach of the
automobile, reared and attempted to turn. In the narrow space
between the sidewalk and the street car standing on the track,
Mr Thomas found it impossible to avoid running into the surrey.
No one was seriously hurt although the party were pretty
thoroughly frightened. Several spokes of the surrey were broken
and the harness. Mr Thomas was driving at a moderate speed when
the accident occurred.
