New York City, NY Bolting Horse Overturns Carriage, July 1901
FOUR HURLED FROM CARRIAGE.
BOLTING HORSE OVERTURNED THE VEHICLE, AND ITS OCCUPANTS WERE ALL HURT.
Four persons were thrown from a carriage last night in which they were driving down Seventh Avenue. All were more or less severely injured, and were taken to the J. Hood Wright Hospital, where their wounds were dressed by DR. OGILVIE. They are MR. and MRS. R. T. PHILLIPS, MISS JOSEPHINE OTT, and MRS. B. TUMBAUM, all of 1875 Seventh Avenue.
MISS OTT and MRS. TUMBAUM were guests of MR. and MRS. PHILLIPS during a drive up Seventh Avenue and through the Bronx. They were returning, when, at One Hundred and Forty-fifth Street, the horse became frightened at a newspaper blowing across the street in front of him and bolted. He wheeled short and started back up the street.
The carriage, a big two-seat vehicle, was turned over, and for two blocks was dragged on one side. At one Hundred and Forty-seventh Street a mounted policeman from the High Bridge Station captured the horse and called the ambulance.
