Postmaster L. J. Scholl Receives Slight Injuries

From The Malakoff News

Postmaster Louis J. Scholl, Sr.

25 November, 1925

Postmaster Louis J. Scholl received minor injuries in the right hip last Friday night when he was struck by an automobile driven by Clifton Vandagriff.

Mr. Scholl was crossing the street next to the Dan Gentry corner when he saw the car coming down upon him.  He turned in an effort to get out of the way but was too late.  The front fender of the car struck him in the right hip and carried him down the street some fifteen or twenty feet where he rolled clear of the wheels.  He was taken into Payne’s Café where he received medical attention.  Dr. Fowler, after examination, stated that no bones were broken, but the hip was severely bruised.
