Frank, the three-year-old son of Dr. W. C. McCannon, of Knoxville, died January 1st from injuries received when the automobile driven by his father ran over him and crushed his little body. The lad was riding from the garage to the street, as was his daily custom. He fell from the step as he was about to alight and landed between the front and rear wheels. Before the father could stop the machine the rear wheel had passed over the child's body. The father carried him into the house, not realizing the extent of his injuries. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to Dr. McCannon.
