Former Carrollton Couple Killed At Crossing Crash
Children also die when car is struck by locomotive
Thomas Newell, his wife and their two small children were instantly killed last Saturday night when the automobile in which they were riding was struck by an engine on the Pennsylvania railroad at the Fourth-st crossing in Canton. The family were returning to their home at 411 Rowland-ave N. E., after a visit with Mr. Newell's mother and stepfather, Mr. and Mrs. James Miller of Carrollton, who were guests of Mrs. John Edie, 1826 Fourth-st N. E. Mrs. Edie is a sister of Mr. Newell.
Mr. Newell was driving a delivery truck owned by the Hoppsetter Baking company, where he is employed, and it is believed that poor visibility caused by accommodating the whole family in the small seat, was responsible for the accident. The locomotive was a switch engine and was returning after assisting a heavy train through the city tracks. Three of the bodies were thrown clear of the wreckage but the fourth, that of Mr. Newell, was found on the pilot of the engine. All were dead when rescuers reached the scene. The tragedy occurred at 10:30.
Although the Fourth-st crossing is considered a dangerous one, no watchman is on duty at night. Buildings obstruct the view on both approaches to the tracks and street lights are at a considerable distance from the intersection. Motorists have only the bell or whistle of the locomotive to warn them of impending danger.
Mr. and Mrs. Newell were 23 years old. One of the children, Dorothy, was 8 years of age and the other, Helen, 8 months of age. Besides his mother Mr. Newell is survived by three brothers, Fred of Dell Roy; Earl of Indianapolis and Chester of Canton and Mrs. Bert Parker of Sherodsville.
