A Bridal Party Badly Mangled
Steele Scrapbook - January 13, 1892


PUEBLO, Cal., Jan. 13.—A serious ending to a wedding occurred here yesterday. John Stanks, a well-known Hungarian, and Mrs. Kobash Mara were united in marriage, and were on their way to their home in a hack accompanied by Andy Martin, who had officiated as best man at the wedding. While crossing the Santa Fe Railroad track the hack was struck by a switch engine and completely demolished. Martin and the bride were thrown under the wheels of the engine. Martin had his right leg cut off and skull fractured, and will probably die. Mrs. Stanks, the bridge, had her left arm cut off and sustained severe internal injuries, but will probably recover. The groom and driver were also seriously injured.
