Accident at Bakerton. A bad accident occurred yesterday morning at the limestone quarries of the Washington Building Lime Company at Bakerton, when Richard Brashears, of Sharpsburg, and John Hetzel, of Antietam, were painfully hurt. The two men were operating a steam drill, and had been at work only about five minutes when a mass of rock fell upon them. Mr. Brashears got the worst of it, being literally crushed under the avalanche, which had probably become loosened by the rain of the night before. His left leg was broken, his collarbone fractured, and he had a very bad cut on his head, besides other bruises and contusions. Mr. Hetzel was not so badly hurt, his injuries consisting of minor cuts and bruises. Superintendent D. R. Houser wanted the men to go to the hospital in Charles Town, but both preferred to be sent to their homes. They were made as comfortable as possible and taken home– Mr. Hetzel in a buggy and Mr. Brashears being carried on a mattress in a wagon. While the latter’s injuries are severe, it is hoped that he will recover.
