Montclair and Verona Parties Injured Last Saturday.

Sheldon Case, son of Dr. Levi W. Case, of 41 Park street, was testing the hill-climbing qualities of a new automobile shortly before 10 o’clock Saturday night.  It was an entirely new type of vehicle which might properly be termed a horseless carriage, as with its high running gear, black leather dashboard, and buggy top to match, it closely resembles the regulation “doctor’s gig”. Nothing like it had been seen in Montclair before.

Young Case was ascending Hillside avenue, near St. Luke’s place, where the grade is unusually steep.  When he overtook a carriage occupied by James W. Orr and his wife and daughter, Case signalled to Orr to drive to the side of the road, but in the darkness the latter mistook the outlines of the auto for those of a buggy and miscalculated its speed, for the vehicles collided with great force and overturned, throwing their occupants out upon the roadway.

Mrs. Orr sustained severe injuries to her left arm and shoulder, while Mr. Orr received an ugly gash in the head.  Their daughter escaped injury, but suffered from the result of shock.  Case was bruised about the body, but fortunately escaped serious injury.
