Mat Poos, a Minot drayman, in attempting to drive across the Great Northern crossing just east of the new depot, was struck by the engine of No. 5 and severely injured. One of his horses had to be shot. Poos had six ribs broken, three on each side, had the right side of his face severely bruised, a bad cut over the right eye and was internally injured. There is a chance of recovery but he will be confined to the hospital for a month or six weeks at the best. Poos is a man of 51 years and his age will be against him in his fight for life.
