AUTO WRECK NEAR KRAGNES- Moorhead Daily News, Thur. 1 Jan. 1914 Elderly Lady is Badly Injured. Names of Parties Not Known

 

Word comes from the Ernest Nelson farm, two miles west of Kragnes, of an automobile wreck that occurred near there. The names of those in the wreck could not be learned, but it was stated that an old lady who was in the car was badly injured.

 

MRS. HOFFMAN FATALLY HURT--Moorhead Daily News, Thur. 1 1914 She was victim of the auto accident mentioned last evening. Her skull was fractured.

 

Automobile skidded and overturned, pinning her under the car. The news mentioned very briefly last evening that a serious automobile accident had occurred Tuesday afternoon near the Ernest Nelson farm, two miles west of Kragnes, but was unable to secure the names of those in the wreck. It transpired later that Mrs. Grace Hoffman of Georgetown was the unfortunate victim and that she was believed to be fatally injured. Mrs. Hoffman had been visiting with her granddaughter in this city, Mrs. N.C. Wambach, and was being taken to the home of a daughter, Mrs. August Fischer at Georgetown, in an automobile. The machine was running at a good rate when the rear wheels skidded and the machine overturned, pinning the aged lady underneath. Mrs. Fischer and the driver were thrown clear of the machine and were uninjured. Assistance came from the Ernest Nelson farm nearby, and Mrs. Hoffman was released. Dr. Humphrey was summoned, as was Father Gerard. An examination made of the injured woman showed that her skull was fractured and it was not believed that she could long survive." Her condition this afternoon was not much changed, but she is alive.

 

MRS GRACE HOFFMAN DIED OF INJURIES- Fargo Forum, Thur. Evening, 1 Jan. 1914 Mrs. Grace Hoffman of Georgetown succumbed to injuries sustained in an automobile accident Tuesday afternoon, this morning shortly after 9 o'clock, at the home of Ernest Nelson, ten miles north of the city, where the unfortunate woman was taken after the accident to await the services of Dr. Humphrey.

 

With Mrs. August Fischer and a driver, the latter's name unknown, Mrs. Hoffman was riding in an automobile from Moorhead to Georgetown and when about ten miles north of the city the machine suddenly skidded on a bad piece of road, causing the auto to turn turtle. Mrs. Hoffman was thrown out and was caught underneath the car and sustained a fractured skull. She was unconscious when removed. The accident occurred Tuesday afternoon.

 

Mrs. Hoffman was well known in Moorhead and Clay County and was prominent in farming circles near Georgetown. She was returning from Moorhead after transacting some business in the district court before Judge Parsons in connection with a case in which she was one of the principals and which had been pending in the courts for a long time. Coroner Vincent does not deem an inquest necessary and he will release the body for burial later in the day. She leaves a family of grown up children, one of whom is Joseph V. Hoffman of Butte, Mont. who happens to be here on a visit and was with his mother when she passed away. She was 78 years of age. A granddaughter is Mrs. Wambach of this city, and a daughter is Mrs. August G. Fischer of Georgetown. Funeral arrangements are pending and will be fully announced tomorrow. Very general regret is expressed at the untimely end of a lady who was as very highly esteemed as was Mrs. Hoffman.
