Three Women Hurt in Auto Collision—Man Found on Manassas Pike.

Several traffic accidents marred the Christmas holidays last night.

In a collision between two automobiles at Georgia avenue and Kennedy street northwest three persons were injured, none seriously. They were Rebecca L. Weinstein, 3338 M street northwest; Helen Weinstein, nineteen years old, and Mrs. Mayme Webb, 5500 Ninth street northwest. All were treated at Walter Reed Hospital.

Margaret Finch, eight years old, 1538 Seventeenth street northwest, was bruised on the arm and face and may have suffered a fracture of the collar bone when she was struck and knocked down by an automobile in front of 1730 Q street northwest. She is being treated at Emergency Hospital.

Found on Road.

A man whose name is given as I. Block, forty years old, and described as a fur dealer of Baltimore, was removed to Georgetown University Hospital from a point on the road between Alexandria and Manassas, Va., for treatment for severe cuts on the scalp, face and knee and several bruises about the body and head. An X-ray will be made today to determine whether he has a fracture of the skull. According to unidentified persons who removed him to the hospital, Block was pinned underneath an automobile when it overturned.

William H. Rice, colored, thirty-one years old, of Forestville, Md., was seriously injured on Pennsylvania avenue bridge southeast last night when the horse he was driving became frightened and he was thrown from his seat in a wagon. He was hurt about the head and is being treaty at Casualty Hospital.

While trying to board an automobile last night Ophie Bowers, twenty-two years old, of Rosslyn, Va., made a misstep and fell beneath one of the two rear wheels of the vehicle. He was badly injured about the hip. He is at Emergency Hospital.

While operating a street car switch at Seventh street and Florida avenue northwest early this morning J. W. Smith, twenty-eight years old, 909 Quackenbush street northwest, was slightly injured by an automobile.
