July 28, 1907
Bedford, Ind., July 27–Jacob Haverly, a well-known farmer and an old soldier, was fatally injured this evening. Haverly drove to Bedford this morning and on his return home his horse became frightened as he was crossing the Long Bridge over White River, and on reaching the end of the bridge dashed over the embankment and fell 50 feet below.
Haverly, unable to escape from the rig, was carried over the high bluff, the buggy falling on and pinioning him beneath its weight. Haverly's breast was crushed, several ribs broken, and has internal injuries of a fatal character.
