Georgetown, CO Horse and Wagon Accident, Mar 1891


Denver, Col., March 18. - A Times Georgetown, Col., Special says:
A frightful accident occurred at 3 o'clock this morning, directly opposite the famous Bridal Veil Falls, above Georgetown.
A party of sixteen young people had engaged a team and band wagon belonging to A. B. Kinley, of this place, to bring them home from the St. Patrick's ball at Silver Plume. At the point named the team became unmanageable and turned the entire party down the mountain side upon the rocks below. Those that escaped injury from the fall suffered from the kicks and plunges of the horses so that but one of the sixteen escaped injury. It is supposed the wagon came upon some ice and was too heavy for the animals to hold. The driver was WM. CHOUTS.
At this hour it is impossible to give the exact injuries to all but as far as known;
MARY McINNERY, teeth kicked out, part of lip gone, still unconscious;
MARY ENNIS, badly hurt internally;
MARY SPEA, kicked in face by a horse;
BERT VALLE, ribs broken;
JOHN McHOLCOMB, eight stitches in forehead, six in lip and two in nose;
LOTTIE ROBDEAU, ANDREW FITZPATRICK and WM. CHOUTS are also among the injured.
