Loveland, OH Train Collision, Mar 1897
FREIGHT TRAIN RUNS INTO A B & O PASSENGER.
PULLMAN CAR TELESCOPED AND TWO MEN FATALLY HURT.
Cincinnati, O., March 6 -- Early today, during the rain and a thick fog, passenger train 105, westbound on the Midland branch of the Baltimore and Ohio Southern railway, was stopped by a landslide near Hill's Station, five miles west of Loveland. A heavy freight came thundering through the fog and crashed into the sleeper, whose occupants were all in their births. It telescoped three-fourths of the length of the sleeper, throwing occupants out of their berths and pinioning them in agony in the debris of seals, broken glass and splinters. Rescuing was prompt and energetic. Of the occupants injured beyond slight bruises two were hurt fatally, two very seriously, and two painfully, but not dangerously. The fatally injured are:
R. H. WARDER, superintendent of parks, Cincinnati.
P. B. DOBBINS, Wheeling, W. Va., scalded; right leg crushed. It has been amputated.
The seriously injured are:
G. H. RISPE, Richmond, Ind., scalded and injured internally.
MR. L. MYERS, St. Louis, legs and head bruised.
P. B. DOBBINS died tonight at the farm house in which he was cared for, near Hill's Station.
MR. DOBBINS, the man killed, was cashier of a bank and was just appointed a member of Governor Atkinson's military staff.
G. H. RISPE of Richmond, Ind., is reported dying at midnight.
