Train That Carried Relatives of the Injured Here, in a Smash-up

By Associated Press to The Patriot.
Warren, Pa., May 11.-In a crash between three locomotives on the Philadelphia and Erie division of the Pennsylvania Railroad about one mile east of Warren, Charles Sours, fireman on one of the engines, was killed and David Sautelle, engineer of the same engine, fatally injured. One of the heavy engines east-bound, broke down and two others collided with it.

The light engine had been hauling a special containing relatives of people injured in the wreck at Harrisburg and was returning.

Both Sours and Sautelle live in Erie, Pa. William Ward, Henry Havlock, M. Schuman and Edward Logan, all of Warren, were burned by escaping steam and Ward may not live.
