Automobile accidents, still a relatively new phenomenon, were often reported in the News. For instance, an article headlined "Ribs Broken; Lungs Crushed" (4/25/14:9) provides a detailed account of an accident in which a car overturned, or "turned turtle," on a public road. An article titled "Narrow Escape for Auto Party" (4/7/14:3) opens melodramatically: "A party of Rome [Georgia] automobilists rubbed shoulders with death yesterday afternoon."
