First Accident in Career on Railroad Is Fatal to Hornell Man, 64.
Hornell, Dec. 26 - John McDERMOTT, 64 years old, of
No. 46 Jane street, a yard conductor employed by the Erie Railroad Company was
knocked down and run over by a string of cars in the yards here early to-day
and killed instantly. He had worked in the yards for nearly forty-five years
and never before had suffered even the slightest injury.
The accident occurred at 8:40 o'clock this morning at
the east end of the west bound yard, a locality in which Mr. McDERMOTT had
worked for nearly thirty years. Coroner M. G. BURCH, who investigated the
accident, issued a certificate of accidental death and ordered the body
removed to an undertaking parlor.
Mr. McDERMOTT, it is claimed, ran ahead to throw a
switch after which he stepped back onto another track along which a string of
cars was being shoved. The only eyewitness was R. W. CROZIER of No. 47 Pine
street, a yard employee, but he was not near enough to warn Mr. McDERMOTT of
The heavy fall of snow early to-day made work in the
yards dangerous and it is believed that it deadened the sound of the
approaching cars. Several of the cars passed over the man before they could be
brought to a stop and as a result his body was mangled badly.
Besides his widow, he leaves a daughter, Mrs. William
HILL of Patterson, N. J., and two brothers, Patrick and Michael McDERMOTT of
Mr. McDERMOTT was the second oldest active employee
of the Erie Railroad in Hornell and the fact that he went so many years
without injury in what is considered one of the most dangerous jobs only to
meet death in this manner has caused considerable comments.
