In 1913, a milk wagon delivering for W.L. Kent, and driven by his son, R.K. Kent, was hit by a traction car in front of the Acme Mills on Celoron Road and completely demolished, scattering milk and bottles over a wide area. Kent, who was seated on the wagon seat was thrown 20 feet into a ditch on the other side of the street and badly bruised about the head and hands with one shoulder being wrenched. Kent stated he was driving out of the driveway from the Acme Mills when the accident occurred. He did not see the car, which hit the rear wheels of his rig. He stated the car was going so fast that it went 120 feet before the motorman could stop it.
