Fred Keltz, an expressman, was saved from probable death yesterday morning by the prompt action of James Dolan of 1816 High Street, when Keltz' wagon was struck by a westbound Portland-avenue car at Ninth and Market Streets. Keltz was knocked from his seat on the wagon and the front wheels passed over his body.

As a rear wheel was about to pass over his neck, Dolan clutched the bridle and succeeded in bringing the horse to a stop. It is feared that Keltz was injured internally. He was removed to his home, 2123 Dumesnil Street, where he received medical attention.
