Had a Close Call Bob Day Throws Against Passing Train
Bob Day, a farmer living two miles southeast of Jamestown in Hendricks county, had a narrow escape from death early Wednesday morning. He was engaged in hauling pipe from the switch at Jamestown for the pipe line running northeast and was loading his wagon when an east bound freight train came along. His team took fright and started to run and in trying to hold them he was thrown violently against the passing freight train. He was knocked unconscious and fell beside the track and almost under the wheels. Men who were helping load the wagons ran to his assistance and pulled him out of danger. He was taken to Roark & Johnson’s office where his injuries were dressed. He had a scalp wound on the back of his head and one on his forehead besides several minor cuts and scratches.
