L&N Wreck at Howard's Siding, 1914
Dec. 17, 1914
BAD WRECK ON THE L. & N.
South Bound Freight Came to Grief
Tuesday Afternoon at Howard's Siding
and Caused Considerable Damage.
A south bound freight train on the L. & N. Tuesday afternoon came to grief near Howard's siding near the Coosawatie River, and as a result nine cars of coal and a refrigerator car were piled up across the track in all manner of shapes. Had the wreck not occurred just where there was a big fill, there is no doubt but there would have been considerable more damage than there was. As it was, the wreck stopped all traffic until Wednesday morning at 9:40, the track having been blocked for about 16 hours.
