Source: St. Joseph Observer, 15 May 1920
When a truck laden with five tons of crushed rock and driven by Ralph Hall, struck George Violette [sic], a seventy-four-year-old Amazonia man, on South Fourth street Monday, the fender knocked Violette down and then the wheels held him fast. It was necessary to back the truck off the prostrate man before he could be released. His left leg and ankle were crushed, and he also sustained internal injuries. He was taken to the home of relatives in North St. Joseph.
