Fort Wayne, IN Train Accident, Mar 1913


Nickel Plate Fireman Howe Badly Hurt at Nickel.

Sunday night, soon after the wind storm had swept across western Indiana and piled things up promiscuously on the railways Fireman Martin Howe was badly injured as he leaned out of the cab of the engine pulling as the second number of No. 3. The train was passing a freight at the time and a car roof that had been loosened by the wind struck him. One of his arms was broken and his shoulder and head were cut and bruised. The train was in charge of Conductor C. W. Zeigler and Engineer Grover Miller was at the throttle.
