Brookline, MA Train Accident, Apr 1900


Justice Drew of Brookline filed with the Clerk of Courts in Dedham yesterday his report of an inquest into the cause of the death of Frank Knox of Brookline, who was struck by an outward-bound car of the Boston Elevated Railroad Company in Brookline, March 16, and died the next day.

In his report Justice Drew says: "I am of the opinion that the accident was the result of the high rate of speed at which the car was run by the motorman, and of his not sooner endeavoring to stop the car."
