Y., who repaired the slate roof of the Presbyterian church here two years ago, was struck and almost instantly killed by a B. & L. E. trolley car in the hollow just west of the old Leffingwell place on Saturday evening at about 8:30. How the accident happened is a mystery. He had been in town all day with a steeple climber by the name of Geo. H. Scott, and had made several purchases in different stores. At Wiser's he made several purchases for a friend in New York City and paid to have them sent by express. At that time he had over $150 upon his person. In the evening he and Scott started out for a walk, and Scott said they intended to take the trolley back to the village. They had just reached the hollow when the car came over the top of the west hill. When the motorman saw the man on the track he not only whistled but reversed and put on the brakes. The car was under such headway, besides being a down grade, that he could not stop it, and it struck him on the side of the head crushing his skull and throwing him about 30 feet. There was not another mark on him, but both legs were broken at the ankles, and death was almost instantaneous. He was picked up and taken to the Crandall & Carpenter undertaking rooms and Coroner E. R. Osgood notified. He rendered a verdict of accidentally killed by B. & L. E. R. R. Some $98 was found on his person; his hat, in which he carried money, could not be found.
