Baldwin, WI Runaway Accident, Mar 1890

TEN PERSONS HURT.

SERIOUS ACCIDENT TO A PARTY OF PLEASURE SEEKERS AT BALDWIN, WIS.

Baldwin, Wis., March 8. -- Ten persons were seriously injured, some of them fatally, in a runaway accident Thursday night. A party of eighteen people was out driving in a four-horse sleigh when one of the reins broke and the four spirited horses dashed away at breakneck speed, running into a sidewalk and throwing the occupants of the sleigh out with terrific force.
EUGENE DE MARBELL received internal injuries which it is feared will prove fatal. MISS MINNIE PITTMAN was badly cut about the head and is unconscious. GEORGE PITTMAN'S right leg was broken near the hip. MRS. GEORGE PITTMAN was cut about the head and face, and MRS. A. E. BRAINERD was terribly gashed across the top of the head. Five others were injured, but not seriously.
