TUCKER IN SMASH

High Speed Ends in Crash on South Summit for J. M. Tucker.

J. M. Tucker is again in the limelight.

This time Tucker breaks into the news, with a motor car accident, which occurred yesterday afternoon on South Summit street. According to all the information that can be gained, Tucker, who was driving a Briscoe motor car in which there were several other occupants, was racing a Ford, which it is alleged was driven by a local groceryman.

During the course of the fast driving, it is said that the Briscoe swerved, struck the Ford, and then hit the curbing, smashing the Briscoe. The front wheels were badly smashed, the frame was bent, and the fender on the left side of the machine was torn off.

Following the accident several passing motorists saw the occupants of the motor car sitting along the curbing laughing over the accident. As far as could be learned today, no one was hurt in the accident.


Jimmy tucker was one of those local characters whose exploits are a regular feature of the police news.
