Accident on P. R. B.
Derailment of a passenger train on the
Pennsylvania railroad near 8L George,
Pa.. January 30, which resulted in the
death of three and injury of thirty-three
persons, was caused by the defective
condition of the leading' engine truck,
probably contributed to by excessive
speed, inspectors of the Interstate Com
merce Commission have reported.
Broken leaves in both engine truck
springs and an engine truck wheel loose
on the axle were reported as the prin
cipal defects. The report urged more
thorough Inspection and repairs to loco
motives.
