The spirit of St. Louis West bound. The ear was driven onto the crossing by Elmer Hammond from the South and he says he was crowded so far toward the East of the Concrete surface of the space Between the tracks of the Railroad that the right rear wheel dropped off the Edge of the hard surface of the crossing so that the Spring under the machines Frame caught on the Concrete and lot the wheel spin not having any traction on the ground. The Driver was accompanied by James Newgent a youth and they with others helping sought to get tin car out of its dangerous position but they could not move it. The two Young men then ran up the track knowing the fast train was due and had gone almost As far As the Gardner Plant when the train came Over the Crest of the Grade from the East and bore Down upon them tic two signalling frantically for it to Stop. The train consisting of fifteen coaches pulled by two locomotives was running at a Speed reported to have been 65 or 70 Miles an hour and due to that fact and its weight to a engineers could not safely Stop it within the comparatively Short distance Between them and the Road crossing where the car was standing.

The Auto was picked up by the front of the leading engine Anil was carried and pushed ahead of it Down the track until a Point nearly opposite the South Extension of College Avenue where tin Long train and its two massive locomotives were finally stilled. The Crew and other men who gathered sought to pull the automobile wreck Loose from the front of tin locomotive but could not disentangle it until after the front locomotive was uncoupled from the one at us rear and it went Down the track a few rods carrying the wreck and then it backed out from under Ali latter. Thu Auto was practically demolished. The train was delayed 35 or 10 minutes. One Pennsy Man said that if the air brakes had been applied full Force at once tin inevitable result Wollod have been tin buckling of the train probably about the Middle the coaches Laing either thrown upward or sideways due to the thrust of the rear of the train.
