Chicago, IL Train - Snow Plow Wreck, Feb 1885

CHICAGO, ILL., Feb. 9.

An accident occurred on the Milwaukee and Northern Railroad this afternoon four miles south of this city. A delayed freight train was run into by a snow plow, smashing the caboose. The accident was due to the blinding snowstorm. J. A. Annas, of Depere, had a leg broken, and received internal injuries. He will probably die. W. J. Bates, publisher of the Sunday Advance, of Green Bay, was hurt, but not seriously. The Indianapolis line, the Lake Erie, and the middle division of the Illinois Central have abandoned all trains to-night on account of the storm.
