Alex Cummings and wife were driving home last evening met with a severe accident in being turned out of the buggy by a runaway team. They were in the neighborhood of Gus Hamel's house when the fractious animals broke away by turning suddenly from the road and breaking the tongue of the buggy. Both Mr. and Mrs. Cummings were thrown out, the former having his collar bone broken and the latter her face badly bruised. They were attended by Dr. DePuy who set the broken bone. Both remained in the city last night at the Pierce house.
