Fremont, Wis., Sept. 5 -- Three men were killed and forty injured, some seriously when a Soo line passenger train struck a misplaced switch and was wrecked a mile south of here today. The engine was completely demolished and all but two cars left the track.
The engine and mail cars of the train were thrown 200 feet, landing in a corn field. The other coaches, with the exception of two Pullmans, went into a ditch. The engineer of the wrecked train and two unidentified men were killed. A woman from Duluth and a tramp from Detroit are among the injured who will probably die.
