WILLIAM MAOISON INJURED
TEAM RUNS AWAY AND DRIVER
IS THROWN TO THE
Man's Right Shoulder and Ribs Frac
t 'red and His Head Badly
Cut and Bruised.
William Mad toon, employed by J. A.
Dunham, the lumber dealer, met with
a serious accident this morning near
the O. R. & X. depot. Madison was
driving a team hitched to a lumber
wagon when the horses became fright
ened by a passing train and ran away.
Madison hung onto the lines and tried
to stop the frightened animals, but he
was unable to check them. When
near the crossing of the W. & C. R.
track Madison was thrown to the
ground when his feet became entangled
in the reins and before he could get
loose he was dragged about 100 yards
and rolled under the wagon. Both of
the wheels of the wagon pased over
his body, resulting in his right should
er being fractured and all the ribs on
that side broken. In addition to these
injuries Madison's head was badly cut
in several places. He was taken to the
Walla Walla hospital where his in
juries were attended to by Dr. C. B.
Stewart. Madison is an old man and
his injuries may prove fatal.
