This Day In History: 1938-03-20
Simon Mann, 66, of Mahwah was killed instantly as he attempted to cross Route 20 at 7:50 PM. The impact was so great that the radiator of the car driven by a Kingston man, was destroyed. The driver said that he had been blinded by southbound cars and there are no street lights at that point in the road, about 120 feet from Smith’s roadside stand. Mann was a WPA worker. He lived on Mountain Rd. At one time he was owner of property taken over for the new road. The front page article said he was 63, but said he had been born in 1863 which would make him 76?
