Metz girl struck by car Monday afternoon

Pamela Hogan, 2-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hogan of Metz, narrowly escaped serious injury when she was struck by a car on the streets of Metz Monday afternoon.

The little girl was crossing the street from her home to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Waldo Briggs when struck by a car driven by Harry Sumner of Metz. Mr. Sumner did not see the child until other children called to him that she was hit. One wheel of the car passed over her leg, however x-rays at the Nevada Hospital showed only bruises and scratches as a result of the accident. She was kept at the hospital overnight and released Tuesday morning.
