Camden, NJ Train Wreck, Jan 1902


Retired Farmer and His Sister Are Run Down at Crossing.

Camden, N. J., Jan 1.-WILLIAM B. DICK, aged eighty-two years, a retired farmer, and his sister, Emily HOROTAGE, seventy-six years old, were killed to-day by an express train on the Reading Railway, near here, while crossing the tracks in a carriage.

Whether the aged couple attempted to cross the tracks before the train reached the crossing or failed to observe its approach is not known. The engineer tried to stop the express, but it was running at too high speed to prevent the accident.
