Before Finally Stopped and
Prom Tuesday' Dally
Last evening travelers on high
way No. 75, north of this city were
treated to a race staged by a truck
driver and a state highway patrol
man attempting to bring the' racing
truck to a stop.
The truck was coming north on
the highway, driving at a very high
rate of speed and as it neared the
Platte river bridge passed the patrol
sroing as fast as the truck could race.
The patrolmen took after the truck,
the siren being opened on the patrol
car to attract the attention of the
truck driver, the patrolman also
flashing on his spotlight and also
flashing a red light for the truck to
stop. The truck raced on, barelj'
missing several cars and it was not
until Fort Crook was reached that
the truck was forced into the road
side and the driver removed by the j
patrolman. He was apparently in
toxicated and claimed to have not
heard the patrolman or seen his light
signals. The -man was taken on over
to Papillion where he was lodged in
jail to await a hearing and sober up.
