ROWE DIES FROM INJURIES AT C.& O. HOSPITAL TODAY

Hurts Received from Collision Fatal

Mart Rowe, 61 a C. & O. section foreman, of Tadpole Creek near Louisa, who was injured Saturday when two motor cars collided near Richardson, died at 3:15 today at the C. & O. hospital in Huntington.

Oscar Rowe, his son, who also was injured in the wreck, is recovering and will be discharged from the hospital next week.

G. Dixon, a loborer on the section crew, was injured badly in the collision and his foot was amputated at the Huntington hospital Monday. He is resting comfortably but will be confined at the hospital for some time.

Twelve others were slightly injuried in the collision. Mart Rowe received internal injuries and injuries to his head. He never regained consciousness. His widow and two children were called to the hospital last night because of his serious condition and were with him when he died.

His body will be taken to his home near Tadpole Creek late today where funeral services and burial will be held.

The collision occurred at 1:45 P. M. Saturday on a curve in the single C. & O. tracks at Benbow near Richardson. Rowe and his section crew occupied one motor car and several minor C. & O. officials occupied the other. R. W. Mumford, division engineer, of Ashland, was on the Latter car but was not injured.

The three seriously injured men were taken to the C. & O. hospital on a special train.
