Life of Louis Babb Taken in Crash of Truck
Former Saint John Young Man Killed in Rome, N.Y.
The body of Louis Babb, youngest son of Mrs. Sarah and the late Isaac Babb, 45 Duke Street, was brought to the city today from Rome, N.Y. where he was killed on Wednesday. Samuel Babb, a brother, accompanied by his wife, arrived on the same train. A large number of friends and relatives of the young man were at the depot to pay respect to his memory.
Louis Babb removed to New York with his brother more than five years ago. He leaves, besides his mother, four brothers and four sisters, all of whom live in the city excepting Samuel and a married sister in Brooklyn, N.Y. Burial took place this afternoon in the Hebrew burying ground, Fernhill, funeral from Chamberlain's undertaking parlours.
Samuel Babb told an Evening Times Globe reporter that his brother and a fellow workman were killed instantly whilst riding on a construction truck from their living quarters in Rome, N.Y. to a large school building in the course of erection, where the men were employed. It was a cold, windy morning and the men were standing in the vehicle with their backs to the wind crashed against a low overhead steel bridge as the truck sped along. There were other men in the vehicle but not in so dangerous a position and all others escaped injury.
