What might have been a serious automobile accident occurred just north of Lowell on the pike west of S.F. Hayden's place Friday night. A car driven by Ben McClatchee, of Morocco, went to pass another car in the road and in doing so got too close to the bank and were thrown into the ditch. Mr. McClatchee had three ribs broken and was otherwise bruised up. One lady was thrown about twenty feet, but luckily was not hurt. The injured man was brought to Lowell for medical aid.
