Thrown From Vehicle
A serious accident, and one that
might easily bave proven fatal, occur
red last evening near the corner of
First and Main streets. Deputy Bher
iff, T B Johnson, and Mias One Penn
ington, daughter of the preaent sher
iff. C C. Pennington, were returning
last evening from Union and it waa
about eight o'clock wben.tbey reached
ttils oity, and as a matter of course
dark at that time. M ben ibey reach
ed the corner of First and Main Street
where there is a small bridge across a
creek bed, and without any banUters,
it waa impossible to tell exactly where
tbey.were driving and aa a result of
the darkness and tbe fact that the
bridge had no railings on the aidea the
wheela on one aide of tbe vehicle in
which they were driving dropped off
tbe bridge and the occupants we e pit
ched oat of tbe ouggy Ibe drop from
the bridge la aboat lour feet and tbe
creek bed is lined with atones
Mr Johnson reoeived a aevere vat in

and bia left hip badly- Injured bat
there seems to be bo frractures of the
booea. Mias Pennington was severely
jarred Hp and a little bruised but with
the exception of stiff shoulders and
bip that is giving tier some trouble
aba Is in very gojd condition today
and is able to be up. It se.-ms that
the severest Injury she reoeived was
aa her hip struck the wheel when she!
waa thrown out of the vehicle. '
This acoide it ahows how painstaking
tbe city and oounty should be in pre
paring their culv rta and bridge in
soon a meaner that .accidents of this
kind would not so often happen .
