Farmington Woman Killed.

Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock as a local freight pulled in to Farmington they ran down Mrs. Clarence Caysenter at the railroad crossing on West Fort street, crushing her head and shoulder on the right side. She died a few hours later as a result of her injuries.

Shortly after the accident the injured woman was picked up and taken to the city building and Drs. Plummer, [illegible] and Dimitt were called and gave her such medical attentions as to relieve her suffering. It was at that place that she died.

Mrs. Caysenter was about 45 years of age and resided in Barlow’s addition, one of the mining patches in the northwest part of the city. At the time of the accident she was on her return home from attending the death bed of a grand child in the southwest part of the city and had just prepared the child for the grave.

The train was running at a speed of about ten or fifteen miles per hour though some say they were running at least forty miles an hour.
