CARS COLLIDE IN NEWTOWN; DRIVER PROVES SOBRIETY

Bridgeport Man Involved-Offers to Be Examined

An automobile owned and operated by David Knapp, 485 Barnum avenue, Bridgeport and a touring car owned by Anna F. Dwyer, 700 Baldwin avenue, Waterbury, collied on the Danbury road about 930 Saturday night near the residence of Henry taylor on Mount Pleasant. The left front wheels, left fenders and wishbones of both cars were damaged in the collision which occurred on the bend in the road south of the Talor residence. The occupants of both cars escaped uninjured in the sudden crash.

Traffic Jammed

Deputy Sheriff Morris D. Beers arrived at the scene of the accident shortly after it happened and soon got traffic under way. While no arrests were made in the case, Sheriff Beers, owing to charges made by the occupants of the other car, took Knapp to the office of Dr. Edward L. Kingham on Main Street for examination. Knapp volunteered to accompany the sheriff and Dr. Kingham reported that there were no signs of liquor to be found on Knapp. There were two other women riding in the Dwyer machine and Knapp was accompanied by another man who disappeared following the crash.37
