RUN DOWN BY TRIP OF CARS WHILE AT WORK
Run down by a trip of railroad cars in the Keyser Valley yards, Delaware
Lackawanna and Western Railroad, Dennis Lalley, 1420 Cedar avenue incurred
a badly crushed right leg yesterday afternoon at 12:45 o’clock.
The member was amputated a short time after he was removed to the Moses
Taylor hospital for treatment.
Lalley was employed as a laborer in the yards and is believed to have
been crossing the tracks when he was struck. There were no witnesses to
the mishap and as the Cedar avenue man was too weak to be consulted yesterday
at the hospital, the full details of the accident have not been learned.
His condition early today was reported as being “fair.”
