Railroad Accidents in Maryland.
--We find the following casualties by railroad reported in the Baltimore Sun, of Friday, the 13th:
A German boy, aged about 15 years, yesterday met with an accident on the line of the Philadelphia railroad, near the corner of Canton avenue and Ann street, by which his right foot was terribly lacerated from heel to toe. His name we understood to be William Jones
It was thought amputation would be necessary.
This accident, like many others, occurred from the practice of boys jumping on the cars, and, in endeavoring to get off, falling between them.
No blame can be attached to the conductor.
, engineer on the Northern Central Railroad, was badly injured on Wednesday morning in consequence of the engine ‘"Gov. Pollock
,"’ of which he was in charge, running off the track near York
The engine was damaged, and Mr. Macabee
had his right leg broken below the knee by being caught beneath the tender.
The fireman was also injured, but not seriously.
was conveyed to York
, where a surgeon set his limb, and he was subsequently brought to his home, No. 175 Preston street, in this city.
Yesterday about 1 o'clock a young man named Peter Steif
at tempted to get on a train of cars while in motion, on Canton avenue, near Fleet street, to observe the soldiers, but unfortunately slipped and fell upon the track.
The wheels passed over his right leg, crushing dreadfully the foot and ankle.
He was at once removed to the Baltimore Infirmary
, where the limb was amputated.
, a private in company D. Twentieth Indiana Regiment, was killed at bridge No. 52 on the line of the Northern Central railroad, on Wednesday night, in consequence of a log shanty falling down upon him. He was asleep at the time of the accident.
