Omaha, NE Train Accident, Aug 1883

His Skull Fractured.

Matt Armstrong was hurt seriously yesterday afternoon about 3 o'clock by falling from a moving motor train. He was under the influence of liquor, and as the train was coming along twenty-fourth street [ineligible], his hat blew off and in attempting to alight before the conductor could stop the train, he was thrown violently to the pavement. His skull was fractured on the right side. Dr. Bell was summoned and the man was removed to his office on N. Street where the wound was dressed. Armstrong is from Hooper. He was taken to Omaha last night.
