The car operated by E. M. Dunham, 3317 Canty street, turned over five times in its flight down the embankment to the creek one hundred feet below. Mr. Skull, who occupied the seat next to the driver, was thrown from the machine at a point twenty feet from where the car stopped. Mr. Dunham, his wife, and two sisters-in-law, Myrtle Shull of Burnettsville, and Mrs. Laura Shull, 515 West Melbourne avenue, remained in the car. As the car turned over the front door opposite the driver was crushed open and the elderly man was thrown from his seat. The fall caused the fracture of the leg and injuries to his head.
