Samuel Drumm Thrown From Running Board of Car Rounding Curve

Samuel Drumm of Eppley avenue, a conductor on the street railway, had a narrow escape from a serious accident at Greenwood avenue and Underwood streets at 7 o’clock last night, and is now suffering from a seriously bruised elbow and hip.

He was on the running board of a summer car, collecting fares, and was thrown when the car rounded the sharp curve at that point. A doctor was hurriedly summoned, but it was discovered that no bones were broken.

Drumm was taken to his home and will be off duty for several days.
