September 1916 accident

I am doing some research about a man by the name of John Angers who died on September 24, 1916 from the crushing of both legs by an "Electric Car". I believe it to have been in the Worcester, MA area as he was at St Vincent's hospital in Worcester, MA. I would like any information possible or if someone could direct me to another source of information. I have a copy of the death certificate that states the information.
Thank you Richard

The Worcester Public Library has microfilms of many of the city's newspapers (I have researched items in those papers back to 1879). An incident such as this would most likely be reported in those papers.
