Oberlin, OH Parade Accident, June 1890


Oberlin, O., June 10. -- Six students of Oberlin College, who were assisting in drawing the Oberlin College baseball team about the city in a parade yesterday, fell to the ground and were run over by a band wagon which was following immediately after the carriage in which the ball players were riding. The horses could not be checked until after the heavy vehicle had passed over the prostrate boys. All of them were hurt, and three of them, B. A. WILLIAMS, JOHN ELLIS and O. J. LUTHIA, may die.
