From the Lawrence Daily World for Aug. 30, 1909: “Sunday was a day of auto accidents around Lawrence. Two wrecks were reported but neither resulted in injuries, although it was by a miracle that there was not someone seriously hurt in either case. The first wreck occurred near Eudora when two machines containing Topeka people came together, one a Buick, the other a Stratford. Both were going at a high rate of speed. In the other case, a bolt came loose on the W.J.Francisco car near Clinton and became lodged in a wheel. There was a quick turn and upset.”
