Bride of Two Days Was Pinned Under Machine When Toppled Over On Grade Near Hinton. Girl Friend Has Arm Broken

A party of four young people from LeMars, were victims of an automobile accident in which all of the four suffered more or less serious injuries on Saturday afternoon.

The accident occurred near Hinton as the party was returning home from a visit to Sioux City. A very high wind prevailed on Saturday and the members of the party ascribe that as the cause of the accident. They were driving around a corner on a high grade when the force of the wind caused the car to topple over.

In the party were Mr. and Mrs. Charles H.F. Harms, Miss Marquette Harms and Alfred Bowers. Mrs. Harms was caught and pinned underneath the car. The other three were thrown clear of the automobile. Mrs. Harms was quickly rescued from her predicament by the men. She was badly cut about the head and severely bruised. Mr. Harms was also badly cut and bruised. Miss Marquette Harms suffered a broken arm and Mr. Bowers sustained injuries to his leg. The party was conveyed by some good Samaritans to town and assistance rendered and then to the home of Mrs. Harms parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Smith, on Front street.

Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Harms were married last Thursday and were contemplating a trip to Wisconsin by automobile to visit relatives on their honeymoon. The accident will defer their trip for a week or two.
