Camp Hill, AL Train Wrecked, Jan 1890
ANOTHER TRAIN WRECKED.
AND FIVE MEN REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN KILLED.
Opelika, Ala., January 25 -- [Special] -- Another terrible collision occurred on the Savannah and Western railroad about two miles from Camp Hill and twenty miles from Opelika at 5 o'clock this evening.
Two engineers, one fireman and two train hands are reported killed outright, and several others wounded. The wrecking train has just reached Opelika from Salem, and as soon as they receive orders will leave immediately for the scene. It is not yet known where to place the blame.
Drs. Sutton, McCoy and Palmer will leave with the wrecking crew to administer aid to the wounded. All told, twenty-three wrecks occurred on this road within the past three weeks. A few more like the one tonight will bankrupt the company.
