A STREET CAR WRECK.

Pittsburg, July 8. -- Four people were fatally injured and eighteen or twenty others were more or less injured in a street car wreck on the Forbes street line of the Consolidated Traction company. The wreck occurred on the Soho hill at the time when the immense crowds which attended the fireworks display was returning home. An Atwood street car had gone about half way down the hill when it jumped the track. Closely following it came an open summer car with a trailer behind, closely packed with people. Before the second train could be stopped, it crashed into the derailed car. Hardly had the first collision happened before a third car, heavily laden, came down the hill at full speed, and forced its way into the wreck ahead. It was the second crash that did most of the damage and the scene was indescribable.
