As a result of an automobile accident Sunday Sept. 26, 1909, on the highway near the gravel beds in North Caldwell (Lake George), Marion Frazier, son of M.H. Frazier, proprietor of the Hotel Ruliff (north corner of Glen and South streets, Glens Falls), had his leg broken in three places above the knee.
Young Frazier had been to Chestertown and when rounding a curve, another machine was running north, and a carriage was also in the road, so it was a case of either taking the ditch or a head-on collision. The ditch received the decision and the south bound auto turned once and a half over, but Frazier was the only one to receive serious injuries.
In another incident, Mrs. Edward Corrigan, of Kentucky, died at the home of her niece, Mrs. W.M. Hill, of Sandy Hill (Hudson Falls), where she had been taken by ambulance. The two ladies had been standing in front of the Hotel Ruliff in Glens Falls waiting for a car to take them to Warrensburgh to the home of Mrs. Corrigan's sister, Mrs. Sarah Wallace, when Mrs. Corrigan suffered a stroke.
Mr. Corrigan, a well-known horseman, arrived in time for the funeral.
