Hernandez, Pedro


Mexican And One of Mules To Wagon He Was Driving Instantly Killed Near Matthews Friday Afternoon

Peter Hernandez, about 60, Mexican farmer tenant on the Matthews Bros. place, was instantly killed by lightening during the rain and electrical storm Friday afternoon.

Hernandez, said to have been one of the best tenants on the farm, was seated in a wagon driving a team of mules from the field to the barn, when the bolt struck, killing him and one of the mules, and knocking out three spokes in one of the front wheels of the wagon.

The Mexican was wearing a straw hat, practically the entire crown having been torn out and slithered, looking as if it might have been torn off with a rake. He showed no signs of injury other than bleeding at the ears. There were no scars visible on the mule.

The dead man leaves a wife and a large family of children. [Interment in Lakeside Latin Cemetery]
