Portsmouth, NH Train Accident, Jun 1910

CLAIMS TO HAVE BEEN STRUCK BY SHIFTING ENGINE

A man giving the name of John Mitchell and claiming Bangor, Me., as his home, was found wandering around the freight yards of the Boston and Maine railroad shortly before midnight, Wednesday night. He was bleeding from the mouth and he was cut about the face and claimed to have been struck by the shifting engine.

Dr. J. J. Berry was called and he dressed the wounds which were confined to a few cuts and scratches about the face and head. The railroad yard men have some doubts about his being struck by the shifting engine, and think that he simply fell down.
