Injuries A.M. Clark Succumbs to Injuries Received When Struck by Car on Glenrock Street
Douglas Budget - October 8, 1942A.M. Clark, long prominent business man of Glenrock, died at the Douglas hospital about 6 o'clock Tuesday morning from injuries received last Sunday evening when he was struck by a car as he started across a Glenrock street. He was 76 years of age.
Mr. Clark had been a resident of Glenrock for the past 30 or 40 years. For some time he had been employed by the Northwestern railroad and of later years had operated a service station and car agency in Glenrock.
According to a state highway patrolman, who investigated the accident, he was returning to his service station after a trip to the post office. As far as could be learned he stopped to let a transport truck pass and then stepped into the side of a pickup following closely behind, driven by Edna F. Simonson of O'Neil, Neb.
Mr. Clark was struck by the right front fender of the pickup and thrown up and against the windshield, according to reports. He received a fractured skull, a fractured leg and severe lacerations about the head. He was given emergency treatment by Dr. Tabor of Glenrock and later brought to the Douglas hospital.
Miss Simonson said she had been following the big transport and was driving against the sun and did not see Clark until he was at the side of the car.
Funeral services were held at Glenrock this morning at 10 o'clock. The body is being shipped to Inman, Neb. for burial.
