While Jumping on a Fire Truck an Ex-Fireman Lost His Life.
The hook and ladder truck was on its way to a trifling fire at the Kaighn’s Point ferry and while going rapidly down Second street Jubb attempted to jump on. He missed his hold and fell beneath the wheels, which passed over his body, crushing him to death.
Jubb leaves a wife and four small children.
