Hawesville, KY Landslide Wrecks Train, July 1910


Hawesville, Ky., July 19. -- The Louisville, Henderson & St. Louis west-bound passenger train No. 145, which left Louisville for St. Louis, was wrecked by a landslide two miles from this city early today.
Fireman REYNOLDS was killed and several passengers slightly shaken up.
The landslide came just as the train was passing under a high bluff. The locomotive and baggage car were swept from the track by the avalanche and carried 200 feet. Two passenger coaches were derailed, but remained upright. Two heavy Pullmans kept the rails.
