1917
A stolen automobile collided with a popcorn wagon at 12:10 o’clock this afternoon, badly damaging the latter vehicle. The automobile, a service car, was owned by Joe Krum, 1111 West Travis Street, and was being operated by Joe Page, 631 Mission Street. The latter stopped the car Avenue C and Third Street. Hardly had the chauffeur left the automobile when the thief bounded into it and rapidly drove away. The collision with a popcorn wagon on Avenue C, two blocks from the scene of the theft, brought the machine to a standstill.
