1922 - CARS OVERTURN IN WRECK. Spreading Rails Cause Accident in Vermont.

ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt., July 15. - Twenty-four passengers in a Pullman car on the Portland-Montreal train of the Maine Central Railroad were severely shaken up and scores in other cars narrowly escaped injury when the train, due in this city at 2:20 P. M. today, was wrecked at East St. Johnsbury, a few miles out.

Three of the five cars of the train overturned while the train was making forty miles an hour. The last two cars, filled with men, women and children, held to the roadbed.

The accident was caused by spreading rails, according to railroad men.
