Injured at Railway Crossing
Yesterday afternoon while William Larson was on his way home to the country, driving a team to a light wagon, either the team became unmanageable or they ran away, the consequence being that he was caught on the crossing east of the stock yards by the eastbound passenger train and hurled a distance of twenty feet, the rig being totally demolished and the boy thought to be fatally injured.
The train was brought to a stop and was about to return to Lusk with the lad when Arthur Thompson drove up in his car and took him to town where Dr. Dale rendered first aid. A hurried examination revealed the fact that his head was badly cut and bruised and his skull thought to be fractured. He was unconscious most of the time until he was removed to the Northwestern hotel when he showed signed of rallying.
This morning he is reported as being somewhat improved and resting easy. All hope for a speedy recovery for William, who is a fine, bright boy, and his loss would be a terrible blow to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. L. T. Larson, and his other relatives.
