Four Men Injured in Collision Near Columbus, Ohio.

Special to The New York Times.

COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 2.----A Pennsylvania passenger train, southbound from Sandusky to Columbus, ran into the rear of a double-header freight train near Worthington, ten miles north of here, late to-day. Four freight trainmen were injured, one of them, J. A. Atkins, freight conductor, of Columbus, probably fatally.

None on the passenger train was injured, but, owing to cutting off of the steam pipes, all suffered severely from the cold. The wreckage took fire and three cabooses were destroyed.
