The Katy Flyer Goes Into the
Ditch Near San
Entire Train Excepting One Car was
Ditched and Three Cars Turned
v...,·, Oxer — Two.,. ». J
Causes Assigned.
I?— Ran Acionio, Τ<·*λ* 9epi.- -17.· ·
Seventeen persons were injured, sev
eral of them seriously, in a wreck of
the southbound Katy Flyur about
two and one-fourth miles north of
San Marcos yesterday morning at
6:16»,With the exception of one car
the entire tuln Jjbft the rails, the
baggage car, day coach and chair
car turning completely over, and one
of tjho Pullmans 1>elng; thrown at an
angle of forty-five degrees. Another
Pullman wae derailed and one re
mained on the track.
The wreck occurred on what is
known as the joint track, and which
Is maintained by the International
and Great Northern company. Two
causes are assigned for the derail
ment. One is that the rails spread
and the other that workmen had not
properly spiked a rail where severa!
new ties had been placed in the track
the evening before.
At the time the train was travel
ing at a rate of between thirty and
thirty-flve miles an hour, speed be
ing slackened because of the ap
proach to the Katy Junction. A mile
or so east of the Junction the rails
spread, the tank of the engine first
leaving (he track and jumping ovev
the ties for a distance of almost 200
Passengers who were on the train
