The action discharging, the officers j came following an accident by Mr. x . Lindsay on last Thursday after1 noon when the patrol car in which he was traveling went out of conr trolt turned over and was demol. ished. Patrolman Lindsay was -) slightly injured in the wreck. ' ? When the accident happened Pat trolman Lindsay was traveling ' East on U. S. 19A-23 near Bal, sam Fish Hatchery. As the offi? cer entered a curve it careened into a bank on the right hand side of the road, then swerved across - the highway, bounced through a i field, crashed through Sheriff R. d V. Welch's fence and came to rest f on its top in a small creek. Mr. y Lindsay was thrown clear of the i, car when it hit the creek. Patrol; man Tom Jenkins was following j Lindsay in another patrol car but ; was not involved in the accident. - A defective rear end was thought to have caused the accident. Eye witnesses are quoted as saying 1 that the raar wheels of the car vh|e Hfsiinffyjpg badly just before it left the road.
