Fatal Accident at Norton.
News was received here Mon?
day afternoon by R. R. Casper,
auditor of the Stonega Coke
and Coal Company, announc?
ing an accident on the Norfolk
.v Western yards at Norton,
which resulted in fatal injuries
to his fatiier, J B. Casper, for
manv years car inspector for
that railroad, at Norton. From
our information it seems Mr.
i lasper was repairing something
I about tho bumperS of a freight
car when t h e yard engine,
which was making up a
train, backed in on his switch
and pinioned him between the
two cars, t ine hand was caught
in the bumpers and mashed off,
though death which followed
in only a few minutes, was
probably due to internal inju?
ries.
Mr. Casper was about C?
years old, and is survived by
his wife und son, Ray, of this
place. He was held in high
esteem by n host of friends
whom the Post joins in offering
condolence.
Burial took place yestorday
at 4 o'clock in the cemotery at
Norton.
