Theodore Haas Aged 20 Dies In St. Olaf Hospital As Result of Accident Injuries

Theodore Haas, 20, died last night at the St. Olaf Hospital as a result of injuries received in an accident while working in the field Tuesday afternoon at his home near Lyle. Intestinal perforation caused his death.

It is said the young man was working in the field when the team ran away with him. The neck yoke came off and the wagon tongue stuck in the ground, overthrowing the wagon. The young man was dragged thru the wreckage and suffered injuries which caused his death.
