Pictures were taken, attached hereto, at 3:04 p. m. by me and represent the true condition of the highwav and car on that dav.

I had a long conversation with the driver of the Army car and he stated that he was proceeding north on Route No. 6, and saw a child run out into the street, as he thought, after a ball. This later turned out to be an orange. When the child ran across in front of his car be tried to avoid striking him, and then the boy came back again, and again he tried to avoid striking him but this time he was struck by the center of the radiator and the boy was knocked to the street.

deposes and says:

On June 19, 1943, at about 2:45 p. m., I was in the back yard of my home at 56 Abbott Avenue, Palisade Park, N. J.

Our home is located facing Route 6 and as I stood in my back yard my attention was called to an accident by brakes being applied. The noise of these brakes was very loud.

I went to the street immediately and as I reached the highway, I saw a man picking a little boy up and he was being placed in the back of the Army car.

The little boy was picked up out in the second north-bound lane of the highway, and I noticed my long skid marks leading up to the back of this Army car. These skid marks began at the south end of the driveway leading into our property and extended to the second driveway, some 120 feet.

The damage to the Army car was the direct center part of the radiator grill,

After the accident I saw an orange lying on the east curb near the north end of the driveway.

The point of this accident is a straightaway and the view is clear for many hundred feet and on the day of this accident there were no cars parked at the east curb

AFFIDAVIT OF JAMES M. MACKELLAR

STATE OF NEW JERSEY

County of Bergen, :
James M. MacKellar, being of full age, upon his oath deposes and says that
I am a licensed and practicing physician in the State of New Jersey with offices
at Tenafly, N. J. I have been a licensed physician for the past 37 years.

On June 19, 1943, I was called to examine Louis Ciniglio at Englewood Hospital, in the city of Englewood, county of Bergen, State of New Jersey, and at that time, I found him to be suffering from the following injury: Compound comminuted fracture of right humerus, shaft, lower third; fracture of base of skull; lacerations of brain; contusions and abrasions frontal area of head and of the left elbow; fracture of the right scapula. History of unconsciousness when brought to the hospital.

The orders were a complete blood count, urinalysis, plasma protein estimation; spinal taps; 50 percent intravenous glucose solution, phenobarbital, restricted fluids, culfathiazole, soda bicarbonate, soft diet, tetanus and gas bacillus antitoxin, blood pressure and pulse reading every hour.

The operation was on July 14, 1943, and prior to the operation, traction was applied on June 7. Operation consisted of the application of a bone plate to the fractured humerus. Three pieces of bone were removed at operation.

This child was discharged from the hospital on August 8, 1943, apparently in good condition, considering his injuries." He returned to clinic from date of discharge until September 13, 1943, and on October 16, 1943, returned to hospital again for further X-ray. The X-ray shows fracture as previously described, held in position by a metal plate and four screws. There is a large mass of callous around the site of fracture. Fracture line is distinctly visible and there is a line of translucency across the newly formed callous.

My final opinion in this case is that this bone plate should be removed which will necessitate further hospitalization of a week or 10 days, together with necessary anesthesia, incidental medication, nursing, and hospital care. Also, a follow-up X-ray.

The approximate cost of this operation will be $150 for my services, $25 for the anesthetic, and approximately $60 hospital bill.

While this boy has made an apparently satisfactory recovery from his injuries, consistent with their severity, the prognosis, nevertheless, must be guarded inasmuch as there was a fracture of the skull and more or less severe brain injury. My bill for services to date is $370.
