Camden, NJ Auto Accident, Aug 1915

Child Dies From Injuries

From injuries received when she was knocked down by an automobile at Haddon and Kaighn avenues, Camden, Margaret Sampson, aged 11 years, of 1212 Haddon avenue, died in the Homeopathic Hospital yesterday. It was while crowds were going to a circus that Margaret, in company with her mother, apparently became confused and ran directly into the machine, the latter operated by Dr. E. M. Hartman, of Fleetwood, Pa. Her death was caused by internal injuries. Dr. Hartman was absolved from responsibility by the police.
