From the August 17, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."
1916, 100 Years Ago.
"A Ford car came to grief this afternoon just north of the town of Elva. In some matter as yet unknown the machine turned turtle and is now lying in the bottom of the drainage ditch.
"Blood stains near the place indicate that someone was injured but so far the police do not know who it was as another autoist came along and took the party away."
