BOY RUN DOWN AND KILLED
BY AUTO IN STORM
Young Henry Janssen Struck While
Pushing Buggy on State Street
Driver Unable in Falling Snow to
See Vehicle Carrying No Lights

One tragedy resulted from the snow storm which visited Salt Lake and vicinity late Monday afternoon when Henry Janssen, 12, R.D.3, box 195, Sandy, was killed instantly by an automobile driven by A. W. Bowman of Midvale.
According to investigating officers, Deputy Sheriffs Charles J. Larson, F. LeRoy Beatie and Joseph C. Smith, the accident occurred opposite 6701 South State street, on the east side of the thoroughfare.
Henry, together with his mother, Mrs. Herman Janssen, and brother, Herman, Jr., had loaded some ties into a buggy, officers said, and was pushing it north on State street.
"The buggy, which was being pulled by Herman, with Mrs. Janssen and Henry pushing it, was partly on and partly off the pavement," the deputies reported. "Bowman was driving north at a speed of between fifteen and twenty-five miles an hour, we learned. It was snowing, and he was using a hand-operated windshield wiper.
"Bowman, in his statement to us, said he was almost upon the buggy, which carried no lights, when he saw it through the falling snow. He pulled to the left, trying to avoid striking it, and hit the left side, striking the boy and tearing off the left wheel. He stopped within twenty-five feet following the mishap, our investigation showed."
Henry was rushed to a physician's office in Midvale, where it was discovered he had died from a basal skull fracture and other injuries. The body was then removed to the Deseret mortuary.
The boy is the son of Herman Janssen, an insurance company representative.
It will be determined Tuesday whether an inquest is to be held, the sheriff's office said.
