MOTOR MAN WAS INJURED SHREDDER WAS DESTROYED AND FRONT OF CAR WAS CAV ED IN TRAFFIC WAS DELAYED FOR SOME TIME. The corn shredder owned by Mr. James S. Chapman, of Cambridge City was. struck by an east bound in terurban freight car, last night about six o'clock near East Germantown. Joe Jackson of this city the motor man on the car, had his leg badly bruised and cut, the corn shredder was totally destroyed, while the front end of the freight car was de- molished, and the running apparatus so broken that a special troni tne Richmond barns had to be sent to East Germantown to bring in the crippled car. Owing to the extremely' heavy load upon the freight car, it served as a ballast, or the probabilities are, that the car would have been hurled off the track and probably the motorman and ccr d ictor would have received serious if not fatal injuries. S?ys no Whistle Sounded, Mr. Chapman was crossing the tracks east of Germantown, and had forgotten the fact that the freight car was scheduled to follow the passen ger, which he had noticed passlig by. He therefore smarted his machine across the tracks, and all of the en gine and tender had passed over when the interurban struck the shredder. Mr. Chapman stated that the car did not whistle for the cross ing and the headlight could not be seen, owing to the fact that thei'e was a turn near the point of cross ing, and that it was also foggy which dimmed the effect of tie extremely strong headlight. Mr. Jackson the injured motorman wa3;p3aced upon the next passeneer car coming into this city" and taken to his home. Although the injury which he sustained is not of serious nature it is very painful, and unless complications set in, he will recover in the course of the next few weeks. The wreck blocked the track for some time. BAD ACCIDENT AVERTED Broken Spring on New VorK Limited Discovered in Time to Prevent a Wreck. . A serious accident was narrowly Notable Buildings ARCHITECT.
