Sleeping Man Hit By Car

The Detroit Free Press, September 2, 1908
John Armstrong's mode of entry into Eloise may not have been the strangest but it certainly was one of the more painful. The Saginaw harness maker was sleeping along the interurban tracks at Eloise on September 1, 1908 when an eastbound train car clipped his head. Though his head was badly injured, Dr. Marker didn't think it was anything that some bandages and pain killers couldn't mend.
