Four Injured In North Branch Crash

October 3, 1940

Four colored persons were injured Tuesday night when the automobile in which they were riding was sidewiped by a large trailer truck on the Liberty road near North Branch.

The injured, all occupants of a Ford coach which was demolished by the crash, were:

Chester Dorsey, driver, three broken ribs and punctured lung; Sally Miller, in charge of nurses at Henryton sanatorium, broken hip; Joe Dorsey, cook at Springfield Hospital, cuts and bruises about head; his wife, undetermined injuries.

All of the injured were removed to Baltimore hospitals. The accident occurred around 8 o’clock when the driver of the trailer, operated by a mid-western transportation company, apparently lost control of the vehicle. The huge trailer turned over on its side near top of the hill on the Baltimore county side of North Branch.
