24 Feb 1922 Manassas Journal

Miss Elsie Baggett, twenty-one years old, daughter of Mrs. Mamie Baggett, of Manassas, Va., at five o’clock Wednesday afternoon while crossing at King and Pitt Streets, Alexandria, was struck by an automobile driven by Edward S. Morgan, of 123 South Pitt street, employed as a millworker in Washington, and fatally injured.

Immediately following the accident Morgan picked up the young woman and rushed her to the Alexandria Hospital and Dr. S. B. Moore was summoned. Miss Baggett received internal injuries and died half an hour afterward.

At the time Miss Baggett was on her way from work, she being employed at Woolworth’s store on King Street.
The mother of the young woman was notified and arrived in Alexandria late the same night.

Miss Baggett made her home with her aunt, Mrs. G. Benjamin Beach, 310 North Royal Street.

According to Morgan, he was traveling south on Pitt street and the young woman came from behind a car, which was parked alongside the curb at the corner of King and Pitt streets, and he said that before he realized it she was up against the radiator of his car with her hands up, she being in the act of crossing at King and Pitt streets, going in an easterly direction at the time. Morgan claims that at the time his car was traveling at a reduced rate of speed. Andrew Cheshire, 13, was in the car with him at the time.

Surviving the deceased, besides her mother, are two sisters, Mrs. Harold Smith and Mrs. Burder Athey, both of Manassas, and two brothers, Mr. Selwyn Baggett, of Nokesville, and Mr. Allen Baggett, of Manassas.

Funeral services were conducted this afternoon from the Aden Asbury M. E. Church and interment was made in the Aden cemetery.
