Jenison, MI Interurban Car And Auto Collide, June 1920
FIVE KILLED WHEN CAR STRIKES AUTO.
Grand Rapids, Mich., June 7. -- Five persons, including the husband, wife and their young son and daughter, and a neighbor's boy, were instantly killed early last evening when a southbound Michigan railway limited interurban car struck the automobile in which they were riding at a crossing one mile south of Jenison, west of Grand Rapids.
The dead are:
MR. and MRS. JOHN D. POLZIN, both 34 years old.
JOSEPH POLZIN, 13, a son.
AGNES, 6, a daughter.
ULRIE HOAT, 13, a neighbor's boy.
All were residents of Grand Rapids.
The bodies were mangled beyond recognition and it was several hours after the accident that they were identified. The accident is believed to have been caused by heavy foliage of trees obscuring the vision of the oncoming interurban car.
