Alexis, MI Train Derailment, Jan 1907

J. F. Brunswick Died From Injuries.

As a result of injuries received Sunday in a slight wreck at a derail Lake Shore Engineman J. F. Brunswick died at a hopital [sic] in Detroit, his last home, Thursday.

Mr. Brunswick's injuries were received when his engine No. 5035 ran off a derail at Alexis, a station on the Detroit division between Detroit and Toledo at the junction with a belt line. The locomotive tipped over when it left the rails and Mr. Brunswick was pinioned beneath the machine and held there for more than an hour.

He appeared unhurt when taken out from under the cab, the machine seemingly having been held up by some obstruction and did not rest heavily upon his body. Internal injuries developed later and his death followed yesterday.

Mr. Brunswick who is well known to railroad men locally joined the company's employ in May of 1903. His home was in Detroit and he is survived by his wife. He was about thirty-five years of age.
