Col. Astor's Automobile Mishap.

The New York Times
July 20, 1900


POUGHKEEPSIE, July 19.—Col. John Jacob Astor and his nine-year-old son Vincent left their home in Rhinebeck this afternoon for a ride in one of the three automobiles which Mr. Astor keeps on the place. Opposite Douglass Merritt's place, and two miles from his own, Mr. Astor undertook to turn the machine around, when suddenly the automobile turned a somersault, and father and son were thrown out with great force. The boy was not hurt, and Col. Astor cut his hands slightly. The automobile is a total wreck.
