CAUGHT UNDER BLAZING CAR

The New York Times
December 1, 1922


Stamford Couple Rescued, Badly Hurt—Man Arrested for Speeding.

Special to The New York Times.

STAMFORD. Conn., Nov. 30.—Miss Edna Sturgess, 21 years old, and Lebert V. Brinckerhoff, 25, were severely-injured early this morning in Hope Street when an automobile in which they were riding turned over after hitting a curbstone.

The car caught fire, and only for the timely arrival of people in front whose house the accident happened the couple would have been burned to death. They dragged Miss Sturgess and Brinckerhoff from beneath the blazing car. The Springdale Fire Department was called out to put out the fire.

Brinckerhoff was arrested. The police say he was speeding and was in no condition to drive a car. He was badly cut about the eyes and head, and Miss Sturgess received bad scalp wounds and was injured about the legs.
