AUTOMOBILE TURNS OVER.

Said to Have Been Racing With a Bicycle—Two Men Hurt.

BABYLON, L. I., July 12.—R. G. Draper and M. L. Thompson, residents of Brooklyn, were injured to-night while driving an automobile from Brooklyn to Bay Shore.

At East Babylon it is alleged they started a race with Thomas Mackay, a telegraph messenger, who was mounted on a bicycle. While going at full speed they lost control of the machine, which struck the cycle path and overturned. Both men were thrown out and severely bruised, and one of Mr. Draper's arms is broken.

They were taken to Bay Shore, and the automobile was towed back to Babylon. It is badly damaged.
