Man and Three Women Pinned in Wreckage at Montague—One woman Has Arm Broken.

A touring party passing through Montague had quite a serious accident yesterday. While climbing the Mill river hill there was not sufficient power, and the machine began to slip back. The driver lost control and the car ran backward and capsized. The occupants, a man and three women, were locked in their seats and buried under the automobile. The woman who was driving had her arm broken in several places. Dr. E. A. Dean of Montague attended them and they were taken to the hotel at Montague. A telephone message was sent to the manufacturers fo the automobile, who sent men to right the machine which was started off again to Orange about noon.
