Mrs. Bishop Fatally Injured in an Automobile Accident

Special to The New York Times

DETROIT, Nov. 5---To survive the Titanic disaster only to be fatally injured in an automobile accident was the fate of Mrs. Dickinson Bishop of Dowagiac, Mich.

With her husband and a party of friends she was returning early this morning from a dance at the Country Club. The motor car evidently became unmanageable at a turn or else was running at too high a rate of speed, for instead of turning it dashed straight ahead into a tree. Mrs. Bishop was thrown twenty-five feet, striking on the pavement. Her skull was fractured, and the doctors say her hurts are fatal. Her husband was only slightly injured.
