Jump From Auto is Fatal to Schoolboy

From The Oakland Tribune, 17 May 1919, p. 2

Jump From Auto is Fatal to Schoolboy

Takeo Sekiyama, an 8-year-old school boy of 718 Myrtle street, was killed last night when the auto in which he was riding turned over, pining his body to the pavement. The boy was riding with his father, who was driving the car on Arimo street. At Walla Vista street, Takeo jumped out of the car in such a way that his father feared he would fall under the wheels. The attempt to turn the automobile to one side proved fatal. It tipped over and crushed the 8-year-old boy to the pavement. He was taken to the Emergency hospital and died a few minutes later.
