Bellingham, WA Auto Wreck, May 1914


A five-passenger automobile purchased two days by J. H. Stenger, owner of the Bellingham hotel, was in collision with a big truck of the Wilson Feed company at C and Holly streets at 1:45 o'clock this afternoon. Mr. Stenger and the truck driver were both making the turn at the corner, but in opposite directions. Both were going slow, and consequently the damage done was not serious. The light machine received injury to the radiator and lamps and a burst tire. The truck got out without any damage.
