Cliffside, March 14 — Ivey Shuford, George Thompson and Francis Thompson, all of Cliffside, were injured in an automobile crash late Sunday afternoon in Spartanburg, S. C.
Shuford suffered serious head injuries and was taken immediately to the Spartanburg general hospital. George Thompson suffered shock, bruises and a badly injured arm. He was unconscious when admitted to the hospital. Francis Thompson suffered minor injuries. The car in which the three Cliffside youths were riding collided with a car from Gaffney, S. C., occupied by W. R. King, chain store manager, and Raymond Parker, both of Gaffney. Both cars were virtually demolished.
W. R. King received serious head injuries and was taken to Spartanburg general hospital in an unconscious condition. Raymond Parker was not seriously injured.
When the accident occurred the car in which the Cliffside boys were riding was entering Spartanburg on Magnolia street and the car occupied by King and Parker was traveling on College street. The accident was reported as being one of the worst crashes that has occurred in Spartanburg in several months.
Shufford is manager of the Cliffside Dry Cleaning plant and George Thompson was until recently assistant postmaster here.
This accounts for Mr. Thompson’s Cliffside column being omitted from this week’s issue of the Courier.
