Three occupants of the automobile were attended for injuries by Am- bulance Surgeon Sinberg of Wyckoff Heights Hospital, while passengers on the Richmond Hill trolley car were badly shaken up but refused medical attention.
Glendale detectives started an In- vestigation shortly afterward to de- termine whether one of the cars, bearing license plates allegedly wrong, was a stolen auto.

According to the police report. I Jonoako was driving toward Myrtle
avenue in Brush street when he at- tempted to make a right turn at the intersection, just as the taxicab and trolley car approached the crossing In Myrtle avenue. The taxi driver swerved his machine to avoid a col- lision with the other car, police said, crashing into the trolley car.
Passing motorists aided in extri- cating the Jonoskos from the over- turned machine while an ambulance from Wyckoff Heights Hospital w a s summoned.
Jonosko was taken to the Glendale station and questioned later by De- tective James T. Connolly. The For- est Hills man told police he had pur- chased the automobile second-band In Williamsburg some time ago. The allegedly improper license plates were on it then, he said.
