CHARLES WREDE, 82
STRUCK BY AN AUTO
Charles Wredm aged 82 years, a
veteran of the Civil war and one of
Holt county’s pioneer residents, sus
tained a fractured hip and arm and
other injuries which he is not apt to
survive when he was struck by a
small car Sunday evening at the inter
section of Fourth and Everett streets
in the heart of the business section of
this city. The car was occupied by
Miss Edna Tucker, its owner, and
Miss Viola Ejckhoff, both of Page.
Their identity was not discovered until
Mr. Wrede was crossing the inter
section diagonally and was struck and
threw to the ground by the car just
after he stepped out from behind a
lamp post of the central and orna
mental lighting system. He was car
ried several feet by the car before it
was stopped and he was removed by
persons passing, from beneath the
front axle. The car was said by
several witnesses to be running with
out lights, although the intersection
at which the accident took place was
well lighted. The occupants of the
car offered to assit in removing Mr.
Wrede to his home, nearby, but later
left the scene without disclosing their
identity and on their return to Page
did not inform their relatives of the
affair. An investigation by County
Attorney J. D. Cronin and Deputy
Sheriff Bergstrom at Page Monday
Afternoon disclosed that Miss Eickoff
Sad been one of the occupants of the
«ar and when confronted by the offi
cials at her home she admitted it.
Miss Tucker, who is teaching school
at Venus, also later admitted being the
driver of the car. The charges to be
preferred against them await the out
come of the injuries sustained by Mr.
The young women declared to the
officers that they were not traveling
at a high rate oz speed and said that
the caT lights were burning. They
said that they saw Mr. Wrede as he
stepped from behind the lamp post and
that they would have cleared him had
he not stepped back into the path of
the car. At the time of the accident
one of the girls gave as an excuse for
the car lights not burning that the
wiring system was broken. Their ex
cuse for not mentioning the accident
before being apprehended by the
officers was that they did not think
Mr. Wrede had been seriously injured.
