Boy injured by car – Yesterday a boy named Fred Curzon (8), son of Mr and Mrs Samuel Curzon, of Cornforth Lane, was knocked down by a motor-car near his home. The boy ran across the road after a ball as the car driven by Mr Jones, motor dealer, Ferry Hill, was proceeding towards Coxhoe. It is supposed that one of the mudguards of the car caught the boy. He was attended by Nurse Dunne and Dr Oliver and was afterwards conveyed to Durham Hospital suffering from concussion.
