The Death of Charles Gohing

The Northville Record, March 7, 1919
This is not your prototypical death story from the old house of an inmate but the sort that regularly happened at Eloise whether it involved a patient or not. With the added kicker that soldier Charles Gohing's death was only partially caused by being struck by an interurban car. After exiting a convoy truck he was riding in Gohing was struck by the train and then apparently the truck also ran him over. At least that's what I'm getting out of the article. Though I'm guessing that the wording of the incident is fairly flawed as it seems to suggest that the truck driver purposely ran Gohing over, which seems highly unlikely.
