Thursday, week of November 30, 1899
Struck by an Electric Car
H. M. Baker and his son C. E. Baker from Oronogo were driving across Main street at the corner of Fifth, Saturday afternoon, when electric car 42 came whizzing along and frightened the colt they were driving. They were unable to get out of the way of the car in time and the car gathered in the left hind wheel of the vehicle, spilled the two gentlemen out and knocked the headlight off of the car. The horse did not attempt to run, and the gentlemen walked home rubbing their bruises and thanking their stars that it was not more serious. The buggy is still at the side of the street, minus the broken wheel.
