Coroner Tinsley held an inquest at the northeastern police station yesterday morning in the case of John Hettchen, who died last Sunday from injuries sustained by being thrown from his wagon on East Baltimore Street, near Lloyd Street. The witnesses examined were John Sumwalt, Joseph Rosenfeld, Dennis Maher and Dr. Matthieu. It appeared from evidence that Mr. Hettchen was driviing in an opposite direction to a dray driven by Maher and an ice-wagon driven by Sumwalt. In avoiding the dray, Mr. Hettchen collided with the ice-wagon and was thrown out and injured by the wheels of his own wagon running over him.
A jury rendered a verdict that he came to his death from injuries "by being thrown from his wagon in collison with an ice-cart and that no blam is attached to the driver of the ice-cart."
