Tribune Tuesday: Cut By Trunk


From: The Oakland Tribune, 01 May 1906

D. J. Crowley, baggageman at the station of the Southern Pacific at First and Broadway was struck in the face by the corner of a trunk, in a passings [sic] truck load yesterday morning, and a right angled gash an inch or more long each way from the corner cut in his face just under the eye. The cut laid the flesh open to the bone. Steward Harry Borchert at the receiving hospital stitched the wound up.
