1889 - A BAD FREIGHT WRECK.



WATERBURY, Ct., July 2. - In confusion, piled up end over end, nearly all of 11 loaded freight cars blocked the Naugatuck track today at the turn out, two miles below Seymour. All day, until 3 P.M., transfers were made on all passenger trains, and there were none of them, but what were very late both ways. The accident was probably due to a broken wheel or a poor frog. The derailed train was the north-bound New Haven freight, due at Seymour at 4:58 A. M. At the time of the accident, a brakeman, John Hutchinson, was standing between the two cars that are the most broken up. He was thrown several feet into a tree, but escaped with slight bruises.
