CYCLIST DIES OF INJURIES IN CAR COLLISION
Donald Lester Boland, 17-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Boland, Emmitsburg died at 9:55 o'clock Thursday evening in the Warner Hospital of injuries he suffered Sunday evening when he collided with an automobile while riding a bicycle toward Gettysburg a short distance north of Emmitsburg on the main highway. Dr. C. G. Crist, Adams County coroner, signed a certificate attributing death to a fracture of the skull suffered in the accident. His other injuries include multiple fractures of the jaw and face bones, and laceration s of the right arm, forehead, and face.
After the accident reports from Emmitsburg stated that Donald had been riding in the direction of Gettysburg when he swerved to the left to pass a car as another machine passed, traveling the opposite direction. The bicycle struck the southbound car and knocked Boland to the highway. A door handle was knocked off the auto by the force of the impact.
The driver of the car who was said to be from Graceham, Maryland, took the youth to the office of Dr. W. R. Cacle, Emmitsburg. From there he was brought to the hospital here. His condition became steadily more serious.
The youth was a member of St. Joseph's Catholic church at Emmitsburg and had been residing with his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. William Winebrenner, Fairfied, R.2 north of Emmitsburg along the Gettysburg highway. The parents and grandparents survive as do two brothers and three sisters: Sgt. Joseph Boland, Camp Bowie, Texas; Berry, Mary, Patrick and Rose Boland, all at home.
