Winslow, AZ Bridge Collapses, Aug 1930


Winslow, Ariz., Aug. 8. - Santa Fe passenger train No. 8, from Los Angeles to Chicago, broke through a rain-weakened bridge 10 miles west of Joseph City, Ariz., last night, killing the engineer, R. E. BIXBY, and probably killing the fireman, MORRIS E. BURNEY.
No passengers were reported hurt. BIXBY'S body was recovered early today, but that of BURNEY had not been located.
The engine, tender and two baggage cars went through the bridge, a small structure.
