History: Runaway wagon

“A Runaway” exclaimed an article in the Aspen Daily Chronicle on Nov. 15, 1890. “Jacob Jacobson, a ranchman on Capital Creek, came into town yesterday, bringing word that a serious runaway occurred that day down the valley. Two ladies were driving in a light wagon down the hill from the Snow Mass Divide near Kit Robinson’s ranch. Their team ran away and the ladies were thrown out. One was Mrs. Annette, but Mr. Jacobson did not know the other. The strange lady fell on her head and shoulders and was quite badly hurt. Further particulars of the runaway could not be obtained.”
