Mrs. L.V. Buskirk Cadillac
Wrecked By Negro Driver
Wild Run Comes to Stop When Phone Pole is Hit
-Car is Demolished Broke Bottle And
Puddle of Booze Tell Story

The big Cadillac sedan belonging to Mrs. L.V. Buskirk was almost totally wrecked yesterday afternoon when it finished a wild run down from Indianapolis by being stopped by a telephone pole. The machine was being driven at a terrific pace when it struck the pole and the wreckage was almost complete. In the car were Otto Perring and Otto Wilson, two young colored men, and a whiskey bottle, and while the bottle was broken Perring and Wilson were pulled out of the wreckage with only minor injuries.

Probably the worst feature of the accident is that Mrs. Buskirk is likely barred from receiving any accident insurance on the wreck because the driver was intoxicated. Perring was driving and if the insurance company can prove he was intoxicated, it does not have to pay any loss, as there is a clause in all policies to this effect. It will be little trouble for the insurance company to prove intoxication in this case as a dozen farmers observed the boys in their wild ride toward Bloomington.

Perring, driver for Mrs. Buskirk, drove Attorney Allen Buskirk back to Indianapolis Tuesday and the Cadillac was placed in the shop there for repairs. Perring and Wilson were returning it yesterday. Their downfall was evidently bad bootleg booze...
