HIT AND RUN DRIVER KILLS AGED MAN
Cooper Rd. Scene of Fatality
Somewhere in this area is a hit run motorist whose car killed an elderly man Saturday
Dead is Julius Vines, 68, 8821 Cooper Rd. He was struck by an auto on Cooper Rd. a short distance from his trailer home.
Vines lived alone. He apparently was returning home, walking south along the east side of the road, when the accident occurred.
Two young girls found his body lying in the east ditch. They were Helen and Barbara
Mullis, 15 and 12, 8855 Cooper Rd. They first saw Vines' overshoe, then his cap, and finally his body. Rushing home, they notified their parents, Mr. And Mrs. Dale H. Mullis, who identified the body.
Mullis said Vines usually walked past their home two or three times a day.
County and city officers are delving into the mystery today, after tracing several
unsuccessful leads Sunday.
Coroner William Rauen said Vines' right arm, his neck, and right led were broken by the impact. The sheriff's office was notified by Mrs. Mullis at 8:56 p.m. Deputy Joseph Kolbasnik said he and Deputy Howard Wohlgemuth found the man's chest still warm when they arrived. Kolbasnik said the body was between 10 and 11 feet off the road.
"Nobody heard a thing out there," said Kolbasnik. He and Wolghemuth found fragments of glass lying on snow just north of the body. The glass came from a broken headlight lens.
Chief Investigator William P. Schmitt said he intended to carry on an intensive
investigation into the death later today. Sheriff James Marshall said itn was impossible for the driver not to have known he had hit something.
Coroner Rauen said no one apparently knew where Vines was coming from. "It looked a whole lot like he was on his way home." He said Vines still had his hands in his pockets when found.
"I think the driver is a man from Kenosha." commented Rauen. "NO outside driver would be on that road. (Cooper Rd. dead-ends at the Pleasant Prairie town hall road to the south) It's more of a local road for people who live there."
County officers released a 37 year old Kenosha man last night after questioning him about the accident. His car had a broken headlight, but it was established that this was caused by an accident in Illinois, Schmitt explained.
NATIVE OF LITHUANIA
Around the time of the accident, Blazavier's Body Shop, 6021 22nd Ave., received a call from a motorist who said he had hit a tree. Jack Blazavier reported that the man "mumbled" and may have been intoxicated. He asked Blazavier to take his tow truck out to 1616 71st St., but Det. Sgt. Franklin Hill and he found no evidence of a car at that address. Hill said the occupant there does not own an auto. The two searched further in the neighborhood, but were able to find no damaged auto or tree.
Vines had been living in a small trailer, where most of his effects were found. But deputies said he was in the process of moving to the Tirabassi farm a short distance away, where more of his personal effects were found.
Vines was born Nov. 28, 1888, in Lithuania, according to the funeral home. He and his wife, now living in Chicago, were separated. He has seven children, including four sons, Julius, Jr. and Edward of Kenosha, and Tony and Charles of Chicago, and three daughters, Mary Jean, Kenosha, Johanna, Union Grove, and Helen, Lafayette, Ind. He had worked chiefly as a farm laborer.

Soo Engine Hits Auto of Charles Vohs.
Martin Vohs Instantly Killed At Chestnut Street Crossing Last Friday Evening.
Martin Vohs wasM killed instantly and Chas. Vohs his father and Irving Vohs, his brother, received serious injuries when the auto in which they were riding was hit by a SOO line
passenger train at the Chestnut street crossing about 7 o'clock last Friday evening.
Messrs. Vohs, who reside on a farm on the Honey Creek road, were coming to Burlington for the, evening. Irving was driving the machine and he rounded the bend at the Nestle's Food Co. cold storage plant and got onto the SOO line tracks without seeing the approaching train.
Henry ,Hoerneman, who is crossing tender, states that the gates on the right hand side of the road were down, but faulty mechansim prevented the gate, on the left side from going all the way down, He states that Mr. Vohs drove around two cars which had stopped there to let the train passa and onto the tracks on the left side of the road.
The speeding south bound passenger engine caught the Vohs car square in the middle. All three were thrown from the car which was dragged a full cfty block to the Washington street crossing before the train was stopped. In some miraculous manner Charles, and Irving Vohs were thrown clear of the train. The unforunate Martin was caught beneath it, his head and body crushed and his feet cut off. The auto was completely wrecked. The body was taken to the McCarthy funeral home and Coroner W. F. Kisow notified. Deputy Sheriff H. W, Schenning impaneled a coroner's jury composed of James Wilson, M. M.Morissey, Charles McCarthy, Joe Hoelz, Charles Stang and Al Reuschlein. They viewed the remains and the scene of the accident and were then excused until Charles and Irving Vohs have recovered from the injuries so as to be present at the inquest to testify. The inquest was held yeaterday afternoon.
Martin Vohs was the oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Vohs and was born here April 21, 1891. He had always made his home with his parents and had helped his father on the farm. His mother died a month ago and he is now survived by his father and one brother Irving.
Funeral services were held from St. John's Lutheran church on Tuesday afternoon, Rev. C. H. Sieker officiating and his remains laid to rest in the Burlington cemetery.

is survived by his father, Charles Vohs and one brother, Irving.
So far it is not known what arrangements have been made for an inquest in the
tragic death of Martin Vohs, which has stirred Burlington. Hundreds of people
visited the scene of the scene of the accident Saturday and marveled that the two
other occupants of the car were not killed. The auto in which the three men were
riding was reduced to a mass of shapeless junk by the train, which carried it a
full block down the track.
This is the second accident which has occurred at the Chestnut street crossing
in a few months. During the past summer a car driven by Walter Hommemma was
struck at the same crossing and carried to within a few feet of the spot where
the Vohs car lay when it slipped from the pilot of the locomotive. Hommemma
escaped with his life but was obliged to spend weeks in a local hospital.
