Lexington, KY Fall From Street Car, Feb 1908


Knocked Unconscious While Attempting to Alight From Moving Car.

Chris. Lillard, who resides at 141 East Fourth street, met with an accident about noon yesterday which will no doubt confine him to his home for some time. While attempting to alight from a moving street car at the corner of Fourth and Limestone streets yesterday, Mr. Lillard in some way lost his balance and fell violently to the pavement.

The fall rendered him unconscious, causing the blood to flow freely from his ears, mouth and nose. He was taken to his home and Dr. Scott was hastily summoned.

Mr. Lillard is a well known business man of this city, at present being in charge of the furniture department at the department store of J. D. Purcell & Company.

Mr. Lillard was resting easily at a late hour last night.
