Probably Fatally Injured When Struck by Car
M. C. Keirnan, a watchman at the Hall of Records, was struck and probably fatally injured by a street car at Twelfth and Harrison streets last night shortly after 7 o'clock. He received a fractured skull and numerous bruises upon his body. He was taken by Waldon Gardner of 1604 Castro street to the receiving hospital where his injuries were dressed by Dr. Reinle and Steward Platt. Keirnan is 46 years of age and lives at 1351 Eighteenth street. He has no family. The street car was in charge of Motorman Wallace and Conductor Uncapher, who were bound for the East Oakland car barns in a Grove street car, which had turned into Twelfth street from Broadway.
