Newark, NJ Train Accident, Jan 1869

Jan 7, 1860

KILLED ON THE RAILROAD.---This day a terrible accident occurred on the New Jersey Railroad, at Newark. Two men, named James Taylor and Edward Duffy, who were returning from Elizabeth in a sleigh, attempted to cross the track in front of the "Owl Train," but, miscalculating its distance and speed, were struck by it. Taylor was instantly killed, and Duffy was knocked insensible and considerably hurt, but his injuries will probably not prove fatal.
