Mr. Link, who was on the petit jury of the present term of Court, had been excused and was on his way home. He reached the Glade crossing just before the southbound passenger train reached that point, and started to drive across the track not realizing his danger. The horse had gotten clear of the track and the locomotive struck the dog cart, hurling the cart and Mr. Link a distance of about thirty feet, into a field along side the railroad. The horse was not injured. Engineer SWOPE stopped the train and men hurried to where Mr. Link lay. He was taken aboard the train and brought to Frederick. On the way to the hospital he became unconscious in the ambulance. Dr. Ira J. McCURDY, found that he had sustained a compound fracture of his right leg and a fracture of his right arm, and that his right hip was badle lacerated. He died at 7:30 o'clock from shock. He leaves a widow, but no children. The jury exonerated the railroad company and train crew from blame, but recommended an electric signal bell, like the one at Harmony Grove, to be placed at said crossing.
