Dayton, OH Auto and Train Collision, Jan 1929
3 KILLED, 1 DYING IN DAYTON CRASH.
Dayton, O., Jan. 23. (AP) - Three persons were killed and a fourth probably fatally injured early this morning when the automobile in which they were riding was struck by a north bound Big Four passenger train at a crossing just south of the city.
The dead are:
EFFIE POWER, 21.
ALBERT FUGLEMAN, 25.
and CHARLES WALKER, 18, all of Dayton.
MISS RUTH SOMERS, 18, the fourth member of the automobile sustained a fractured skull and little hope is held for her recovery.
Because there were no witnesses to the accident and due to the critical condition of MISS SOMERS, officials have been unable to determine the exact cause of the accident. The passenger train, traveling at a moderate rate of speed, was entering Dayton, north bound from Cincinnati at the time of the accident. The impact of the collision caused the machine to be dragged for several hundred feet. All the victims were thrown clear of the wreckage and the trio were dead when members of the train crew went to their aid.
