|Tallahassee Women Enroute to Quincy Perish When Train Strikes Auto Near Havana
One Occupant of Car in Accident Yesterday Afternoon May Survive--Car Struck by G., F., & A. Railway Enroute to Havana--Variable Reports Estimate Speed of Car from 35 to 50 Miles an Hour
Two women are dead and a third is in a serious condition from injuries sustained when an automobile in which they were riding was struck yesterday afternoon by a G., F., & A. passenger train at Old Salem on the Quincy-Havana branch just east of Havana.
The dead--Mrs. Mary Anderson and Mrs. J. C. Newell, Tallahassee. The injured--Mrs. Mattie LaBlanc, Tallahassee.
Mrs. Anderson died an hour after the accident in the baggage coach of the train that struck her car, and Mrs. Newell expired while being carried to a Tallahassee hospital in an ambulance.
Mrs. Leblanc is in a serious condition in a hospital at Tallahassee but her condition was reported as improved today and hopes are entertained for her recovery.
Mrs. Anderson is survived by a husband and one child; Mrs. Newell leaves a husband and child, while Mrs. Leblanc is a widow with five children.
The three women were on their way to Quincy on a pleasure ride when the Dodge roadster driven by Mrs. Anderson was struck by the engine of the train number 112, leaving Quincy at 3:40 for Havana. The car was being driven at a rate of speed variable estimated by witnesses at from 35 to 50 miles an hour when it approached the railroad crossing where the crash occurred.
Engineer B. L. Cherry had blown for the crossing and was running slowly when he saw the atuo approaching running, according to his estimate, fifty miles per hour. The driver swerved to the right and the engine hit the car in the middle, knocking it a distance of about twenty feet. All were thrown from the car except Mrs. Anderson, who was left wedged in the wreckage.
Immediately upon observing the swifly moving auto approaching, the engineer applied the air brakes and the train was brought to a standstill within a few yards after striking the car.
Conductor W. W. Johnson and trainmen rushed to the assistance of the injured women and placed them in the baggage coach. Within a few minutes Dr. H. H. Sapp, of Havana, arrived and administered first aid, a call at the same time being put in for Dr. J. C. Davis, local surgeon for the railroad, and Dr. Gordon Chasen, general surgeon, of Bainbridge.
From the first it was recognized that the injuries were of a serious nature, the citizens of Havana responding to aid in caring for the patients. A call was sent to Tallahassee and to Bainbridge for ambulances and they were rushed to the scene with all possible haste to take the women to a hospital for treatment. When the first ambulance arrived from Tallahassee about an hour after the accident Mrs. Anderson had expired and Mrs. Newell, with both arms and both legs broken, was the first to be taken to Tallahassee, later reports being that she died before reaching there. She was injured internally and it is reported died of internal hemorrage and shock.
Mrs. Leblanc, apparently the least injured of the three, had her right arm and shoulder and six ribs broken and suffered internal injuries. She was taken in an ambulance under charge of Dr. Wheat, of Bainbridge, to a hospital in Tallahassee, where the patients were ordered transferred by railroad officials.
Mrs. Leblanc was the only member of the party who was able to talk. While she didn't remember the cause of the accident and asked what struck the car, she stated she cautioned Mrs. Anderson about driving so fast all the way from Tallahassee. When they reached Havana she said she suggested they return to Tallahassee, while Mrs. Anderson insisted upon going on to Quincy.
Mrs. Anderson, the first to die, had both thighs and her left arm broken. continued on page 4 (fortunately the remainder was missed in photographing)

|In Memoriam - George Emmett Sessom
George Emmett Sessom was the son of David and Eliza Sessom, and was born in Gadsden county, Floirida, nearly sixty-seven years ago. His father and mother having died when he was a small boy, an uncle, George Mills, took him and raised him. His mother was a sister of John Mills, who was the father of William and Woody Mills, and their sisters.
Brother Sessom married Miss Joyner near Havana. She died when their children were small. He united with the Baptist church. Among
all who knew him, he had a good name, which is "rather to be chosen than great riches." A quiet, unobtrusive man, he never meddled
with other men's affairs, and never intentionally did any one a wrong. He loved his children and was a good citizen. He was ill some
time prior to his death. On the morning of July 4, 19027, he was called away very suddenly and leaves two sons, George and Lamar
