On a mid-April day back in 1905, D. R. Rundel was in the fair city of Omaha. The Minnesotan was strolling along, probably unaware he would soon expire from this mortal world. Emil Brandeis and his employee witnessed the unusual event which occurred at 16th & Douglas and hastened Rundel's demise. A coroner's jury later examined evidence of the rare incident, andcause of death was to be listed as 'cancer.' The verdict must have been incredible to some folks. Can you explain what actually did happen?
Point here for Dick Taylor's answer --->
He was run over by that new fangled contraption, an automobile.
