Car Crash, Three Occupants Escape Injury–

Inger Ferestad and Mons Tonjum, prominent farmers of this community who have homes in Scobey, and a Sidney man had a close brush with death Saturday morning on a country road about 5 miles south of Four Buttes.

Ferestad was driving, accompanied by his friend, when they met another car on a small hill. E. J. Larson of Sidney, driver of the other car, applied brakes to his vehicle which caused it to veer over and crash into the side of the Ferestad auto.

Occupants of both cars escaped injury, but the vehicles, a 1946 Hudson, and the Ferestad car, a 1937 Ford were badly damaged.
