The machine struck them on the driver's side, and threw the Priebe vehicle down a 15-foot embankment. Their car, a nearly new Chevrolet, was considered a total loss. The accident happened last Wednesday morning. The Fenton folks were taken to the Beard hospital in Troy, where it was thought Mrs Priebe had fractured ribs, and might have to remain there for several weeks.
