Colonial Number 3, PA Train Hits Auto, Nov 1936
THREE KILLED WHEN AUTO HITS TRAIN.
Uniontown, Pa., Nov. 22 (AP) - An automobile racing down a steep hill with a gay, youthful party of six returning from a bridal shower, crashed last night into a train, killing two girls and a boy.
The tragedy occurred during a blinding sleet storm in the mining village of Colonial Number 3, almost on the doorsteps of the victims homes.
The Pennsylvania railroad train dragged the car 200 feet along the tracks before the trainmen's attention was called to the accident by the flaming wreckage.
