James C. “Click” Davis, president of Luray Fabric Care Center, is hospitalized at the University Hospital in Charlottesville and Leo H. Hoak, a member of the Page Grocery Company, is in the Winchester Hospital.

Hoak suffered a fractured vertebra when a heavy carton fell from a truck Friday of last week knocking him to the ground.

Davis suffered fractures of several vertebra, a broken rib and an injury to the lining of the stomach Monday evening of this week when he fell from the bed of a truck.

Both men are progressing satisfactorily and are expected to return to Luray this week.
