In 1913, Charles Heggstrom, a conductor in the employ of the Jamestown Street Railway Company, was fatally injured in a very unusual accident on East Second Street in Jamestown at about 11:40 o'clock in the morning. His head was caught by a passing street car when he leaned from the vestibule. He was at the Woman's Christian Association Hospital in an unconscious condition and there was practically no hope of his recovery, so severe was the fracture of the skull. The car was making a regular run from Falconer to the waiting room on West Third Street when the accident happened. Heggstrom was a young man, only 22 years of age. He lived with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nels Heggstrom at North Main Street in Jamestown
