Lad Pursuing Football in Front of
Auto is injured

Clare Amburn, 15 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Amburn, 84 West Main Street, suffered a broken leg at 3 o’clock Sunday afternoon, while playing football in West Boone Street, between Fifth and Sixth Streets. The lad was running into the the center of the street to catch the oval, punted by a champion. The wind carried the ball in front of an automobile driven by Albert Petteys, an employee of the G. W. Darling Company. The driver was in the act of turning the car to pass around the boy, when the latter, to catch the ball, stepped directly in front of the car and was struck. The front wheel passed over the boy’s leg, breaking a bone above the knee.
