    I would play it the same way as in the other bars. Four eighths and a half. You shouldn‘t trust this arrangement anyway: This is no good notation. Look at the 2 bars the line below. Commented Apr 7, 2019 at 19:04

Do you mean clashing harmonically? That's the composer's prerogative. If you mean clashing physically, it is fine. Play the 'E' with the left hand above the right hand. Note that rhythmically the E comes between the C and D.
