June 22, 2014

In 1914, Clare Pickard of Prendergast Avenue, Jamestown, sustained serious injury Saturday evening when he leaped from his automobile in an attempt to lend assistance to a small boy whom he feared had been struck by the car. A little boy ran out in front of the automobile. Although the car stopped, the boy disappeared from view and Mr. and Mrs. Pickard, who sat in back, behind their chauffeur, thought the boy had been struck. Mr. Pickard leaped over the side of the car without waiting to open the door. His foot caught and he was thrown to the ground violently. It was discovered that the ligaments had been torn loose from the right kneecap and his left wrist was fractured. The child had been knocked down but not injured.
