Miller's Station, OH Train Crashes Into Wagon, Oct 1895
FOUR MEN INSTANTLY KILLED BY A TRAIN.
THEIR BODIES BADLY MUTILATED.
STRUCK AND KILLED BY AN ACCOMMODATION TRAIN WHILE TRYING TO CROSS THE TRACK IN A WAGON.
Steubenville, O., Oct. 22. -- East-bound accommodation No. 56, on the Panhandle railroad, crashed into a wagon at Miller's Station crossing about 7:30 o'clock yesterday morning, demolishing the vehicle and killing the four occupants.
Their names were:
EDWARD COGAN, a driver, 18 years of age.
SAMUEL COGAN, JR., a plasterer, aged 20 years.
SAMUEL COGAN, SR., a plasterer, aged 55 years.
JOHN CAMPBELL, a hodcarrier, aged 26 years.
Their bodies were horribly mangled. There is a sharp curve near the crossing and the engineer claims he did not see the wagon until too late to stop the train. The victims were residents of Youngstown, near Latrobe, Pa.
The men were working for Jesse Cogan, who had a plastering contract under George C. Anderson & Son of Latrobe. They had started for Miller's in a wagon and when near the railroad crossing saw the accomodation and started the horse on the run to cross the track.
After the coroner's inquest the bodies were shipped to Youngstown.
