Naugatuck, CT Train Accident, Jul 1900


Ansonia, June 20.—Wallak Dacsechalk, whose little son was killed on the Naugatuck division, Saturday being struck by a train, has retained Judge Munger as counsel, to bring suit against the railroad company, provided it will not settle for the death of his child.

Notice of an intended suit has been served upon the company by counsel.

Judge Munger thinks that he has good grounds on which to bring a suit for damages, one reason being the neglect of the company to observe proper precautions to prevent accidents to children at that point.

It is said that the fence does not extend so far as it should to prevent people from getting onto the track, there being an open space of nine feet at the north end, where there is a well defined path around the end of the fence onto the track.
