80 Years ago (Dec. 3, 1931)
An accident in which an automobile was badly damaged, but no one hurt occurred on the Federal Highway 42 east of Bedford Wednesday. Attorney Byron Bacon Black, accompanied by a lady passenger, was returning from Covington when his car, an Essex coupe, backfired near the dam on Mr. A. D. Tingle’s place, near the top of the long hill, and was partially destroyed by fire. The damage is covered by insurance.
Another accident occurred at the intersection of Main and Court streets where State road 37 joins U.S. 42. The collision occurred Saturday afternoon, and bystanders report that a Star coming up the hill on 37 failed to stop before proceeding out on U.S. 42, and was promptly pushed up on the concrete steps in front of Clem’s store by a Ford sedan which had the right-of-way. Not a great deal of damage was done. A bent bumper on the Ford and a broken wheel and fender on the Star, but it might have been serious if the cars had been traveling fast, which they often do through Bedford-too fast.
