1911 - Heat causes train wreck.

The Dalles, Ore. - The warping of the rails by heat on the Oregon trunk road Monday afternoon caused the wreck of a southbound passenger train. LOUIS RISING, storekeeper at the Warm Springs Indian school was killed, and his wife was perhaps fatally injured. About twenty others were also injured. The engine left the track and rolled down a forty foot embankment. A day coach followed and fell on the engine.
