@Skokie Mike - I happened to be travelling down Gross Point Road to cover an entirely different story and saw the entire accident unfold before me. God bless nobody was seriously injured. Also, Patch makes sure we're equipped to be a walking newsroom. Best, George

The riders seemed to have escaped harm, thank Goodness, while their carriages were made into mincemeat, yet the newspaperman on the scene declined to inform us of the horses' conditions.... Were they euthanized on the spot, or were they hauled to the Glue-man's cauldron still nickering and neighing?
