Hazard Legend

Two were listed as missing following the sinking of a wagon and team on Main Street in Hazard, opposite the Court House Sunday afternoon. The so-called street probably will be dynamited in an attempt to recover the missing men and the wagon and team. The empty wagon driven by a Perry County citizen, who was accompanied by a friend, was making one knot an hour through four feet of mud, when the disaster occurred. A bottomless hole was struck, and the horses, wagon and human freight were lost from view. It is said that the spot will be paved and further disasters of the sort made impossible within the next twenty years. 1921
