Southwire striker James W. Jones was passing out handbills at the company's corporate officies in Carrolton, Georgia, on November 11th, when the car of an employee who had stopped to take a handbill was struck from behind by another car.

Jones was wedged between a car and the curb and suffered a severed foot, as well as other injuries. He was rushed to a hospital in Macon, where doctors were unable to reattach his foot.

Jones's wife was flown immediatley to Macon, where Steelworkers met her and drove her to the hospital. Returning home to spend Thanksgiving with his wife and three children, Jones sent word to fellow strikers that he would soon rejoin them on the picket line.
