Safetygrams Just the other day a very serious accident was called to my attention when a school child was seriously injured in an automobile accident and later died. It was the first day of school and the little girl's mother had sent her away with the usual warnings about being careful at intersections and getting to school safely. Here is what happened: She passed a driveway on her way to school where the garage was attached to the house and looked like part of the structure The garage was immediately across the sidewalk, and the owner in backing out in the morning, being late for work as he stated warning or looking around, and consequently injured and killed this little girl. There is absolutely no excuse for this type of accident. The driver in a case like this should take into consideration that pedestrians are on the sidewalk and must pass there, and because 01 the peculiar construction of the driveway, it is up to him to' be extra careful in getting his car in and out of the garage. If you have a situation like this, or your driveway crosses a sidewalk, regardless of vision and other safety factors, slow down, Dr. and Mrs. R. O.
