Duluth, MN Street Car Accident, Mar 1907

HIT BY STREET CAR; ESCAPES WITHOUT SCRATCH.

A miraculous escape from serious injury was experienced by B. Nyeberg, a laborer, last night about 10:20 o'clock. While crossing Superior street in front of the Metropolitan theater, he was struck by a street car and sent sprawling 30 feet. A number of comrades thinking that he was seriously hurt rushed to his assistance. The car came to a stop and the motorman and the conductor got off to look Nyeberg over. The victim arose smiling from the frozen street, without a scratch, and after brushing off his clothes, walked away.
