Safe Harbor, PA Train Hits Rockslide, Nov 1942

MAN IS KILLED, GASOLINE BURNS IN TRAIN WRECK

SAFE HARBOR, Pa., Nov. 3 -- (AP) -- One man was killed and 120,000 gallons of gasoline and fuel oil became a blazing inferno, visible for 20 miles, when a Pennsylvania railroad freight train hit a rockslide just east of this Lancaster county town early this morning.

A railroad spokesman said the victim was Marlin B. Frey of Millerstown, Pa., fireman on the freight, who either jumped or was thrown from the locomotive as it overturned. A high tension wire fell across his body, but whether it caused his death was not known because his body was consumed in the fire.  All other members of the crew escaped unhurt.
