RUNAWAY CAUSE OF
SERIOUS ACCIDENT
~
MRS. GEORGE JUNGWORTH SERIOUSLY
INJURED WHEN RUNAWAY
HORSE HITS HER RIG
~
Mrs. George Jungworth, or rural route No. 5, was perhaps fatally injured in an accident on Hill Street shortly before twelve o’clock Saturday. Mrs. Jungworth was driving up Hill Street, and when a short distance above the Diamond house a runaway horse attached to the Lorenz laundry wagon dashed down the hill at a breakneck pace. Before Mrs. Jungworth could turn aside a collision took place. She was thrown between the dashboard and the horse’s feet with violent force and received numerous bruises, the principal injury being to her head. Julius Lippman, who was passing, hurried to her assistance and with the aid of nearby residents carried her into the South home. Dr. Harry Walker was called, and it was impossible for him to determine whether the skull is suffering from concussion of her brain.
Shortly after dinner she was removed to Mercy Hospital, where at a late hour she had not regained consciousness. It will not be possible to know the outcome of her injuries for a few days.
