    • Succumbs After Being Run Over By Wagon

      Amos Gingrich, 40 years old, a Fourth Line of Peel farmer, passed away in the K-W hospital in Kitchener early on Tuesday morning succumbing to injuries received when a wagon loaded with hay passed over his chest and shoulder on Saturday. The unfortunate accident happened at neighbor's when Mr. Gingrich went over to obtain a load of hay. The wagon had been backed into the barn, the load put on an just as Mr Gingrich picked up the lines and was half way up the front of the load the horses started forward. The jolt of the wagon going off the barn floor to the ground threw him down and the wagon wheels passed over his chest and shoulder. Injuries interal- ly were severe an one lung being puntcured (sic), a number of ribs crushed and a fractured collarbone and shoulder. He was alone at the time of the accident, a small boy with him during the loading had gone to get a drink of water. He was picked up by the neighbors and rushed to the hospital under the care of Dr. J. W. McQuibban, Elmira. He is survived by a wife and two small children.
