Henderson, KY Train Wrecked, Oct 1884


Evansville, Ind., Oct. 12. -- A serious accident happened to a Louisville and Nashville transfer train at Henderson, Ky., yesterday.

The train was being hauled up an incline after coming off the barge, when five cars of merchandise jumped the track, and were piled up in a mass, breaking them and scattering their contents in all directions.

Only two men were seriously injured, and they were breakmen.
One, HENRY EPMELER, is now unconscious and will die; the other, LOUIS HOOG, is probably fatally injured.
