1894 - ACCIDENTS ON TROLLEY ROADS. - Five Persons Hurt at Newburg

NEWBURG, July 4. - A trolley care here to-night struck a wagon containing five persons, only one of whom escaped injury.

The injured are:

BERFE, Lionel, 53 Walker Street, New-York, cut about the head.

FIFER, William, of Mountainville, cut about the head.

MOSES, Miss Emily, twelve years old, thigh fractured.

MOSES, Mrs. Pauline, seriously hurt, recovery doubtful.

The party had been at Mountainville during the day and and were returning to the home of Mrs. Moses when the accident occurred.

The motorman of the trolley car, who was slightly hurt by a piece of the wagon, says the team backed into the car and it was impossible for him to stop.

Another accident took place on this road this morning. A lineman named Clark, while on a high wagon soldering wires, received a shock and fell to the pavement. His leg was broken and his skull was fractured. He probably will recover.
