Geo. V. Ward Badly Hurt in Collision Near Elkridge

George V. Ward, manager of the Savage Cotton Mills, of Howard county, was seriously injured Saturday in collision on the Baltimore and Washington Boulevard, about two miles west of Elkridge. Mr. Ward said that we was going in the direction of Elkridge when he saw a buggy coming in the opposite direction, and that he made every effort to get out of the way, but his steering gear failed to work, shooting him suddenly against the vehicle,  which contained Charles and Louis Cooney, of Annapolis Junction. The automobile turned turtle, pinning all three of its occupants under the machine. Mr. Ward had two ribs broken and was also badly bruised about the face while his son, Vernon, and Frank Frazier escaped with slight cuts about the face and hands.

Charles and Louis Cooney were thrown upon the boulevard and were badly bruised.
