1911 - PARLOR CAR JUMPS TRACK.

Eighteen Passengers Shaken and One Hurt on Litchfield Express.

WASHINGTON, Conn., July 8. - Eighteen passengers were well shaken up and one man suffered a serious scalp wound when the rear parlor car of the Litchfield express, on the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad, outward bound from New York, jumped the track about a mile below this place late today and rolled over on its side.

At the time of the accident the train was proceeding slowly, as it was taking a grade, and to this fact is attributed the escape of the passengers from serious injury. The other cars remained on the rails. A considerable section of the roadbed was torn up. The cause of the accident has not been determined.
