Braddock, PA Train Wreck, Sept 1895

Fatal Wreck at Braddock.

PITTSBURG, Sept. 19.---A fatal wreck has occurred at Braddock. The rails spread before a heavy train, throwing the engine on one side and the cars on the other side of the track. The fireman, JAMES P. KELLY, fell under the boiler of the engine and was crushed to death. His body, horribly mangled, was taken to Flannery's undertaking establishment in Braddock. Frank Miller, the engineer, was thrown on a lumber pile 15 feet away, and had an arm fractured, face cut, and had deep scalp wounds, and it is feared he is internally injured.
