Hartford, CT Train Wreck, Dec 1906
BOSTON EXPRESS IN CRASH.
Caboose and a Freight Car Burned Near Hartford.
HARTFORD, Conn., Dec. 30.---The first section of the Boston to New York passenger express train to-night ran into the rear of a slowly moving freight train about a mile below this city.
The express struck the freight at a reduced speed, but the jar overturned a lighted stove in the caboose and this set both the caboose and the rear freight car on fire, both being burned. Two men were in the caboose, but got out safely and no one was injured. The tracks were blocked for two hours.
