Camden Letter Carrier’s Machine Ran Away and Its Occupants Were Cut and Bruised
Harry Reir, a well known Camden letter carrier, with his wife, a small son and a sister, was thrown from an automobile at Delaware avenue and Market street, Camden, last night and all were more or less cut and bruised.
Reir had recently purchased the automobile and was trying it along Market street, when the front wheels slipped and became uncontrollable, which resulted in the machine spilling the occupants.
They were caught beneath the automobile, and several pedestrians went to their assistance. They were taken to a near-by restaurant, where a physician attended their injuries.
