Zanesville, Dec. 4. -- Eleven persons are dead as the result of a wreck on the Pennsylvania railroad, near Dresden, last night, and four others are seriously injured. The breaking of an air pipe, which automatically applied the air brakes, was the cause of the collision between the wrecked train, a passenger train on the Cincinnati & Muskingum Valley route, and a Cleveland, Akron & Columbus division passenger train, which followed it on the single track between Trinway and Zanesville. The latter train broke down and a flagman was sent back to flag the C. & M. V. train, which was too close, however, to prevent the collision, and its engine crashed through the rear coach of the C. A. & C. train.
The dead and injured were all in the rear coach and several escaped by jumping. Many of those injured were victims of the scalding steam from the colliding engine.
The dead are:
MRS. B. A. EMERSON, aged 32, of Zanesville.
JACOB BURGER, father of Mrs. Emerson, of Zanesville.
MRS. EMERSON'S son, aged 2.
