Cleveland, OH Train And Street Car Collision, Sep 1890
INTO A STREET CAR.
A RAILWAY TRAIN RUNS RIGHT THROUGH AN ELECTRIC STREET CAR.
Cleveland, Ohio, Sept. 8. -- A car on the Electric Motor line in this city was run down on Wilson Avenue by a train on the New York, Chicago and St. Louis Railway at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and the car smashed. It was full of passengers at the time and the result of the collision was one death and thirteen persons more or less severely hurt.
The blame seems to rest on the railway people, as the locomotive was running twenty-five miles an hour and there was no whistle blown or bell rung, and no signalman at the crossing.

MINNIE MOCK, aged 24, crushed, died at hospital.
