A Street Car-Ford Accident in 1918

From the May 23, 2018, MidWeek  (DeKalb County, Illinois)  "Looking Back."

1918, 100 Years Ago.

"The DeKalb-Sycamore electric car and a Fort car belonging to A. Montinson, living south of DeKalb, came together this morning at Seventh street, or rather the Ford ran into the street car broadside, the impression of the radiator being plainly visible in the middle of the street car.

"The 'Henry' was badly damaged, while considerable paint was removed from the street car, but otherwise not a great deal of damage was reported."

I imagine "Henry" must refer to Henry Ford.
