AUTOS RUN DOWN 3; 1 KILLED.

The New York Times
April 10, 1914


Owners of Cars in Two Accidents Have Same Address.

Charles Thompson, 11 years old, of 27 Court House Street, Jersey City, was killed by an automobile last night a few doors from his home.  He was crossing the street in front of 580 Newark Avenue when he was run over by a car owned by James McIlgrid of 46 Armstrong Avenue, and driven by William Conger of 322 Baldwin Avenue.  Conger was arrested charged with manslaughter. Mr. McIlgrid, who was in the car, was arrested as a witness and gave bail.

Mr. McIlgrid is superintendent of the Coburn-McIlgrid corporation of Twelfth and Monmouth Streets, Jersey City.

Frederick Sando, 30 years old, of 520 Sixth Street, was run down by an auto owned and driven by Mrs. George J. Sperry, of 440 Riverside Drive, at Broadway and Thirty-eighth Street last night.  His ankle was broken and he was taken to New York Hospital.

Oddly enough, another automobile owner whose car was in an accident last night lives at 440 Riverside Drive.  He is G. E. Smith.  Charles Muller of 549 West 128th Street was alone in the car when it struck 6-year-old Francis Pressy of 490 Riverside Drive at 120th Street and Broadway.

Muller carried the boy to a nearby drug store, and when a Knickerbocker Hospital ambulance came, Dr. Peterson said he was suffering from a possible fracture of the skull and hurried him to the hospital.  His condition is serious.

According to the police, the boy, who was on roller skates, skates directly in front of the machine before the chauffeur was able to stop the car.

Joseph Samuelson of No. 146 West 147th Street, run over yesterday afternoon in Getty Square, Yonkers, by an automobile owned by the Packard Motor Car Co. of 61st Street and Broadway, was taken to St. John's Hospital.  The car was operated by Walter Kuhn of 222 North Avenue, New Rochelle.  Kuhn was paroled.
