HURT IN A RUNAWAY
Serious Accident in Mt. Pleasant to a Student of Elizabeth College
Correspondence of the Observer

Concord, May 28 – An accident happened at Mt. Pleasant to-day. Miss Margaret Hunter, of South Carolina, now a student of Elizabeth College, was badly hurt by a runaway team. She passed through this place to-day in company with a young man. When they arrived at the Seminary in Mt. Pleasant the horses became frightened just before Miss Hunter was getting out of the buggy. The team ran down through the streets for several hundred yards with only the lady in the buggy and no one was able to stop the team. After running a considerable distance they made a turn which threw her out of the buggy. When she was picked up she was unconscious and remained so for an hour or more. She is badly bruised, though it is not thought that any bones are broken. Miss Hunter is a graduate of Mount Amoena Seminary and intended to attend the commencement exercises.
