George B. Friend, proprietor of a Chicago loop clothing store, died at the Evanston hospital at about 430 o'clock Monday morning from injuries sustained in a collision between his car and another machine driven by Leslie Lane, proprietor of the North Shore Taxi Cab Co., of Glencoe, which had occurred just north of the intersections of Greenwood avenue and Sheridan road a few hours previously. Mr. Lane and Adolphus Callahan, the Friend family chauffeur, were seriously injured in the crash and are confined to the Evanston hospital. Mrs. Friend and her two daughters, Shirley and Arleen, sustained severe cuts and bruises but were able to be taken to their home after receiving medical attention.
The Friends were returning to their Chicago home from a visit with friends in Waukegan at the time of the accident and were going south on Sheridan road.
Mr. Lane was returning to Glencoe from Wilmette accompanied by Donald Harry, whom he had procurred [sic] as a driver for one of his cabs. At the sharp curve just north of Greenwood avenue both drivers failed to observe the approach of the other's machine until too late to avoid the crash. Both cars were completely wrecked.
An inquest into the death of Mr. Friend which was to have been held at the Evanston hospital last Monday, was postponed until February 9 at 2 o'clock.
