Duluth, MN runaway accident, Jun 1908

CRIPPLE DASHED TO ROAD BY RUNAWAY HORSE

Henry Walzzak was seriously injured by being thrown from a carriage in a runaway accident at Eleventh avenue west and Superior street yesterday morning. The horse attached to the carriage became frightened at the parade of Ringling Brothers' circus. The young wan with whom Walzzak was riding clung to the reins but the frightened horse overturned the carriage throwing the occupants to the pavement. Walzzak, who is a cripple, was knocked unconscious, but soon revived sufficiently to allow him to ride home. A severe cut on the forehead serves as a painful reminder of the incident.
