Ball Player Bruised in Crash on the New Haven.

WATERBURY, Conn., Sept. 1. - A passenger train running from Bridgeport to Winsted on the New Haven Railroad crashed into several freight cars south of the station here to-day, injuring three persons.

A. L. Raymond of New York, known as "Bugs" Raymond, a baseball player, was bruised about the arms and legs. E. A. Leafgreen of New York received facial injuries, and Mrs. S. J. Kisley of Waterbury complained of injuries to her side. Charles F. Brooker of Ansonia, a Director of the New Haven Road, was in the parlor car, and when the crash came he was hurled from his seat. He directed the clearing of the tracks. Two freight cars and the engine and baggage car were badly damaged.

Raymond was going to Litchfield to pitch in a game between the Litchfield and Willimantic teams.
