Rocky Ford Tribune, Friday May 9, 1902:

Lars Petersen, a young man living at Arlington, was killed by a train at that place last Monday. A high wind was prevailing and in trying to cross the track with a team and wagon, he failed to hear an on-coming train which struck the wagon, throwing him to the ground with such force as to break his neck and killing him instantly, the team and wagon escaping injury.

The funeral took place at the undertaking parlors of the Dawley Hardware & Furniture Co. Thursday afternoon and the remains laid to rest in the Rocky Ford cemetery.
