Milk Wagon Hit By Auto, Upset

The Register-Leader, July 5, 1916

Much milk was spilled and dozens of bottles were broken at 11:30 this morning when an automobile driven by Miss Kathryn Alexander struck the rear end of the Jersey Heights dairy delivery wagon, owned by J. S. Devol and driven by Donovan Williamson, upsetting the wagon at the corner of Second and Putnam streets. The wagon had just turned the corner and Miss Alexander followed.

Williamson was in the wagon when it was turned over, but he was not injured. The shafts of the wagon were broken and this probably saved the horse from injury. The accident was witnessed by a large crowd. The right fender of the Alexander car was bent in the collision.
