Livermore Young Farmer Seriously

Hurt When Wagon Was Struck By

Rock Island Engine.

Livermore Gazette: Roy Devine is lying at home seriously injured by a railway collision. So far as known

at this time however, his injuries are limited to a broken collar bone and some severe bruises about the

head,so that it is possible there may be no permanent bad results.

The wagon in which he was riding was run into by a Rock Island train about nine o'clock last night. They

had just finished loading stock and were on their way home. The team and wagon were John McKenna's

and he was driving. Frank Devine and his sons Frank and Roy were riding. They heard the engine coming

from the west and were looking out for it, but did not know one was approaching from the east. It struck the

wagon and wrecked it, the team running away. All were thrown out, but Roy was the only one injured.
