Glenn Start and Tom Herd figured in a serious auto accident near Gran- ville on Saturday afternoon of last week.

The car trying to pass the Starr truck failed to see a light pick- up coming towards them until they were almost around Starr's truck. In order to avoid colliding with the pick-up the car cut in close to the Starr truck and hooked bumpers with the truck, forcing the truck and the car into the ditch, and also causing the pick-up to go into the ditch. The car causing the accident rolled over three times and all occu- pants of the car were injured. The Starr truck was badly damaged and Walter Pflugradt, who was also haul- ing coal from the same mine, towed the truck to Rotette for repairs. Neither Starr or Tom Herd were injured.
