1911, Feb. 4--Loren Barnes, aged about 30 years, formerly of Ithaca, when crossing the tracks of the Ann Arbor Railroad at Owosso with a horse and carriage, evening of February 4, was instantly killed, being run over by a train. His wife and daughter, who were with him, escaped serious injury, though carried along several hundred feet by the engine. Mr. Barnes' body was terribly mutilated. No one was accounted to have been particularly to blame for the accident.
