Wreck on the M.C.R.

[Waterford Star, September 23, 1915]

An accident which might have had very serious results occurred on the Michigan Central Railroad early Monday morning, just west of Welland when passenger train No. 14 ran into the rear end of a freight train. The only damage resulting was the injury to the way car of the freight train, the rear end of which was broken in considerably. The occupants, conductor Dick Hindley and two brakemen and a stock drover, were given a severe shaking up. The passengers on 14 also received a rude jar and were awakened from their slumbers. Fireman Ford received scratches on his face but engineer Levi Crutts was not touched at all.
