SMALLER CAR BADLY DAMAGED IN EARLY MORNING CRASH
Geneva, April 26 - This morning shortly after 5 o'clock in the state road between Geneva and Waterloo a collision between two automobiles occurred, in which the lighter car was put entirely out of commission. The accident occurred about four miles east of Geneva when the two cars met, one a truck loaded with steel and driven by Roy E. OTIS, of Canandaigua, enroute to Syracuse, and the car owned and driven by Lamber DALTON, of Waterloo, coming towards Geneva.
DALTON claims that the truck was without lights at the time. Before he discovered it the heavy truck was upon him and smashed into his left side, tearing away the running board, smashing the radiator and damaging the car almost beyond repair. OTIS claimed, in his report to the police, that he had one light burning at the time and that the headlights on the DALTON car blinded him so that he could not see. The DALTON car was hauled to the DelPapa garage in Lake street and the truck proceeded on its journey to Syracuse, after making the report to the local police.

SHENKMAN, clothing merchant of this city, was overturned in the road. It is said that SHENKMAN lost control of the car, which skidded and turned turtle. HELT suffered a badly lacerated scalp and many bruises and ARONSON was bruised about the face quite severely, but was able to walk following the accident.

The injured men were brought to the Thompson Memorial Hospital here by Dr. WILLIAMSON, of Gorham, and their injuries dressed by him and Dr. Harry C. BUELL, of this city. The new automobile, which SHENKMAN had purchased only a few days ago, was badly wrecked.

WOMAN KNOCKED DOWN AND DRAGGED BY CAR
Injuries, However, are Not Serious as Result
Bath, April 26 - Mrs. Walter BENNETT narrowly escaped serious injury yesterday afternoon, when she was knocked down and dragged beneath an automobile driven by a Mr. VAN GORDER, of Owego. The accident occurred in Liberty street, near the junction of William street.
Mrs. BENNETT in crossing the street observed the car approaching at an estimated speed of twenty miles an hour. Thinking the car was to turn into William street, she paused to allow it to pass. Instead the driver changed his mind, evidently, for the car turned suddenly at the corner, and as it swerved into a straight course north on Loberty street, Mrs. BENNETT was struck. The depending crank of the motor caught Mrs. BENNETT between the shoulders, and face downward she was forced beneath the car and dragged about fifteen feet, before the operation of the brakes brought the car to a standstill.
Mr. VAN GORDER took Mrs. BENNETT at once to the office of Dr. Zeno SELLECK. She suffered a cut over the left eye; the entire left side of her face was bruised and lacerated where she was dragged on the pavement; one leg was wrenched where her slipper had caught in the steering gear rows beneath the car; she was bruised between the shoulders, and her left hand was lacerated. Although her injuries are not serious, she will be confined to her home for some days.
