Notes
INJURED WHEN CAR is HIT by Hit-Skipper (newspaper article August 13) Clarence Orwig, who lives on the Eureka College farm southwest of town, was the victim of a hit and run driver about 6 o'clock last evening on Route 95 between Cuba and Smithfield. His right shoulder was broken and a bone in his left wrist was fractured. He was taken to the office of Dr. J. W. Welch, who attended his injuries. Orwig and Herbert Anderson of Cuba were in Orwig's car coming toward Cuba when the "wild" driver appeared. Orwig tried to get off the road, but the other car beat him to it and knocked him off. The Cuba car turned over and Anderson, who is a large man, fell on Orwig. A Smithfield man who witnessed the accident said that the hit-skip driver was traveling 70 miles an hour. His car seemed to be undamaged as he kept going.
