The trestle where the accident oc
curred is 500 feet long and is located
on a sharp curve. Engineer Ilrodie
was a new man on that division of the
Southern, and it is said lie came to the
curve at a very high rate of speed.
The engine had gone only about fifty
feet on the trestle win n it sprang from

cars and an express car. The trestle, a
wooden structure, also gave way for a
space of fifty feet.
At the foot of tlie trestle is a shallow
stream with a rocky bottom. Striking
tills, the engine and the ears were re
duced to a mass of twisted iron and
steel and pieces of splintered wood. As
the cars went down they touched the
side of the Riverside cotton mill, which
is very close to tlie trestle.
Several thousand people were soon
at the scene of the wreck. No one on
any of the cars had made an effort to
jump, and the bodies of all those killed
were found in tlie wreckage of the dif
ferent cars to which they belonged.
Ladies who drove out to the wreck
from Danville fainted at tlie sight of
the bodies, some of which were crushed
to a ghastly degree. It seemed mirac
ulous that any one should have es
caped. for each car falling with the en
gine bounded from it and completely
collapsed after striking the rocks at
tlie foot of tlie trestle. All the express
matter in the express car was practi

of canary birds. None of the birds
was hurt, though the crates were in
cial opinions that have been ascer
tained agree in giving only one cause
for the wreck, the high speed of the
train on the sharp curve.
The mail bags in all the mail cars
were torn open, and the letters and
packages were scattered, but it is be
lieved none is lost. Fire which ap
peared in the wreckage shortly after it
occurred was quickly extinguished by
tlie Danville Are department.
In loss of life this is one of the most
serious wrecks that have occurred on
the Southern, and it is tlie third time
that the fast mail has been almost en
tirely demolished. On account of the
wreck all traffic on the central and
northern divisions of the Southern will
be affected. It will take several days
to repair the damage to the trestle.
