Struck By a Train.
Last Wednesday while one of the Sussex
trains was running between Cranberry Lake and Stanhope, the engineer
discovered a prostrated man at the side of the track. The train was
stopped, when it was found that the man was unconscious and was more
or less bruised, having a deep gash over the right eye. He was taken
on the train and removed to Stanhope. Before arriving at the latter
place the man revived and gave his name as Michael Rilley, but was
unable to tell how he had been injured. It is believed that he had
been struck by one of the trains passing over the line. After remaining
at the station for several hours, the Netcong officials did not deem
it their duty to care for the injured man, while the Byram authorities
held the same opinion, the Lackawanna officials took charge of the
man and sent him to a Paterson hospital. He recovered sufficiently
a few days later to leave the hospital.
