Perrysburg, OH Train Wreck, Aug 1959

15 Are Injured In Train Wreck

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP)--- Fifteen persons were injured Monday when seven cars of a nine-car Baltimore & Ohio passenger train derailed in suburban Perrysburg. None was hurt seriously.

The diner, last car on the train, was tilted at the 45-degree angle and rescue workers broke open the car to let the occupants out. Two other cars also were tilted but none went over completely.

About 200 passengers were aboard the train, the Cincinnatian, en route to Detroit from Cincinnati. They were taken to Toledo by bus.

W. F. Fisher, the engineer, said the derailment might have been caused when a brakeman pulled the emergency cord after hearing a thumping noise while he was in the club car.
