Autos Scare Horses, Three Women Injuried in Homer, Illinois, November 21, 1907


Since three serious accidents have occurred lately to ladies in this vicinity directly attributable to horses being frightened at automobiles, this question has become an important one and a word of warning to automobile drivers has become necessary.

We believe that Homer owners and drivers of automobiles are desirous that their machines not prove a menace or a disturbance to the community, yet many are that claim and circumstances to prove it. Many horses never will become accustom to these horseless conveniences, and since horses were here first and must necessarily remain, the auto drivers must do all in their power to avoid accidents in the best interest of everybody.
