Goshen, NY Automobile And Bus Collision, Nov 1933
SIX KILLED IN AUTO-BUS CRASH.
COUPLE EN-ROUTE TO ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT PARTY AMONG VICTIMS.
Goshen, N.Y., Nov. 25. (AP) - Six persons were killed in a collision between an automobile and a motor bus about 10 miles south of here on the highway between Goshen and Chester last night. All were occupants of the automobile. No one in the bus was injured.
The victims were:
JACOB KAISER and his wife, GERTRUDE.
ROSE, MARIE and KATHERINE DUR, sisters, and KENNETH BAIRD, all of Middletown.
They were bound for Brooklyn to attend a party at which the engagement of BAIRD and ROSE DUR was to have been announced.
The bus driven by Roland Nelson of Monticello, and bound from New York for Liberty, was proceeding upgrade in the early evening. It overtook a farm wagon and Nelson said he did not see the vehicle until he was almost upon it. He swung the bus to the left on the road past the wagon, but the rear of the heavy passenger vehicle struck the rear of the wagon. At the same instant the automobile which was driven by KAISER, came over the brow of the hill and crashed head-on into the bus.
By order of District Attorney Franklin Schriver, Nelson was held in jail pending an investigation.
