Summerhill Young Man Meets His Death While Engaged in Somerset County Coal Workings.

Andrew M. Tully, a young man who was employed as a Motorman in the Berwind-White coal mines in Paint Township, Somerset County, near the Scalp Level Post-office, was fatally injured while at work yesterday afternoon.

The motor passed over one of his legs, badly crushing it. After this accident he was brought to this city by a Scalp Level liveryman and taken to the Memorial Hospital for treatment. The injured member was amputated at 8 o'clock in the evening, and two hours later the young man died.

The deceased was a son of Michael and Eliza Tully, of Summerhill, this county, and was in his twenty-fifth year. He had been employed by the Berwind-White Company since last June.

The father of the unfortunate young man came here shortly after the accident occurred and left this morning on the 8:24 train with the body for Summerhill. The funeral will take place at 9 o'clock to-morrow morning from St. Bartholomew's Roman Catholic Church at Wilmore, interment to be made in the church graveyard at a later hour.
