Harlingen Man Hurt In Auto Collision

(Special to the Herald)

HARLINGEN, Aug. 30--R. E. Doty, of Harlingen, suffered slight injuries to his back when his car went into a ditch after a collision with another automobile driven by Miss Ruth Newport, also of Harlingen. The accident occurred just west of the Arroyo Colorado bridge early Saturday morning.

A truck had slowed up behind a wagon, and Miss Newport swerved out to pass the truck, it was said, colliding with Doty coming from the opposite direction. His car was thrown into the ditch.

Doty's injuries were not sufficiently serious to require taking him to the hospital.
