Ole Knutson obituary
KILLED ON WAY HOME
OVER TAKEN BY THE I. C. TRAIN AT 7:05 SATURDAY EVENING ABOUT A MILE WEST OF LYLE.
Ole Knutson, of this vicinity came to an untimely death, without warning, Saturday evening. He had finished his days of work and left the Central depot at 6 o'clock, apparently on his way home and the next heard of him was that he had been overtaken by the 7 o'clock I.C.R.R. passenger train, about one mile west of the village. He had evidently started for home but why he had not reached there before the train overtook him, and why he was sitting still on his speeder, apparently unmindful of the oncoming train, seem a mystery.
The engineer did not see him in time to stop the train as he was on a curve. The train was stopped and the body brought back to Lyle. Mr. Knutson was unconscious when picked up and lived only a few hours. He was about 54 years of age and leaves a wife 2 sons and 3 daughters. He has been employed for the past thirty two years as a railroad man in this place and was at the time of his death section foreman on the I.C., west from Lyle. The funeral was held at the home Tuesday at 12 o'clock and at the Mona church at 2 p.m. Mr. Knutson was killed just about the same place that Ole Anderson was on the 4th of July and the same engineer was running the train.
