Oneida, NY Bicycle Accident, Jun 1901

Bicycle Accident.

ONEIDA, June 15.---Miss Bertha Smith, a daughter of Mrs. Perry Smith of Oneida Castle, was seriously injured in a bicycle accident last night. Miss Smith is employed at Kenwood. She was coming home on her wheel, which in some manner became unmanageable and threw her to the ground. She struck against a tree and as she lay on the path was run over by another girl rider following. For about three hours she remained unconscious and it is feared that serious internal injuries were received. Dr. S. J. Wilson attended her. She passed a comparatively good night but was considered worse this morning. No bones were broken.
