Auto Crash Fatal
John Hodges Dies When Car Leaves Carmel Road

As the result of an auto crash up the Carmel Valley yesterday A.J. Hodges, local barber, is dead and Mrs. Hodges is seriously injured. Mr. & Mrs. Hodges were bound up the Carmel Valley for a fishing trip. They were on the new road about one mile this side of the Del Monte Ranch when the accident occurred. Very little information can be obtained as to how the mishap occurred as there were no witnesses. It is stated that in taking the turn in the road at that point the driver swung out near the edge too far and the slid over. The car rook a drop of about 60 feet, turning over and over. At the first turn Mrs. Hodges was thrown clear and this saved her life. Hodges was pinned in behind the wheel and could not free himself. Mrs. Hodges suffered several broken ribs and was badly bruised about the head. Mr. Hodges has been employed by the Monterey Baber Shop for the past two years and is well known here. The remains are being held at the Freeman undertaking parlors. An inquest will be held as soon as Mrs. Hodges is able to tell how the accident happened and give the cause. Buried in El Carmelo Cemetery

Hodges, Andrew J., married C., age 56, died in Monterey County on June 27, 1920 #25237
