AUTO ACCIDENT HAS A FATAL OUTCOME Wednesday Evening Brings a Startling List of Casualties. As the result of injuries received ·when struck by an automobile driven by Dr. Fred J. Schulz, 1421 Broadway, Mrs. Elizabeth Craig, 60 years old, died at St. Joseph hospital, Wednesday night at 10 o'clock, just an hour after the accident had occurred. No blame will be attached to Dr. Schulz according to a careful investiga tion that was made Wednesday night and Thursday morning by Coroner J. E. McArdle. The coroner will find that Mrs. Craig came to her death from injuries received in an unavoidable accident. , Mrs. Craig, who lives five miles north of Fort Wayne in St. Joseph township, was about a mile from her home on the : St. Joe road in search of some turkeys : that had strayed from her farm. Dr. j Schulz was driving north toward Robi ison park and as he neared the woman. ; whom he did not see, however, -a Ford 'i machine coming from the opposite direction approached him. Dimming.his lights he-turned to one side of the road to let the Ford pass and as he did so ran directly into the woman. Turning into the ditch was the only thing that prevented him from running over Mrs. Craig. When he brought his car to a stop he did not know what he had hit, but, upon returning found the aged woman unconscious at the side of the road. He picked her up, placed her In his automobile and rushed her to tha St. Joseph hospital with all possible haste. At the hospital it was found that her pelvis bones had been fractured, besides innumerable bruises. She never regained consciousness. ' "Dr. Scliulz, who was atone, says he could not have been going any faster than twelve rniles, an hour, for he had, dimmed his lights and was" turning out ~ie side of the road to- permit the CHERTTHES11S BYCiyPlUNNINB J.
