Two Southern Railway Trains In
Smanshiup. No Fatal Injuries.
Chairleston, Feb., 21.-Twenty-four
passengers and eight railway men
were injured in a headon collision this
morning between Southern Railway
trains Nos. 16, from Columbia, and 13
from 'Charleston, which came together
at IBennetts about six miles from this
city. No fatalities resulted, most of
the injuries received being of a minor
charater. The two locopmotlves were
practically demolished, and the engine
ien had a narrow escape from ,death,
as the cabs were mashed flat by the
impact. They jumped in time, after
putting on brakes and reversing their
engines. The collision occurred
through some misunderstanding, not
ye't officially cleared up.
There were about 1~>0 passengers on
the two trains. All were severely
jolted, but. of the 24 listed as inured,
none is apiparently seriously hurt.
Engineers W. P. Sullivan of No. 16,
and liugene Conlon of No. 13, Con
ductors Fickling and 'Kennedy, and
Engineer O'Brien of the A. C. L., who
was on the train, were sent to Roper
hospital for treatment, wile two
porters and an A. C. -I. inspector, .1.
.-I. Hurbige, also hurt, went to their
homes. All are of Charleston, it is
understood. None of the injured Ints
sengers found it necessary to go to
the hospital, so far as has Ibeen
learned. The passengers of both
trains and tra inment were brought to
Charleston on the -Atlantie Coast Line
trala No. 85, which came along soon
afte' the accident. Work of clearing
the track was beg.-iun proiptly, and
the two trains will resume operation
by toimorrow. Another track at this
point enabled general traffile over ie
Southern to be handled as usual. None
of the cars left the rails, the impact
being heavy but much lessened by
precautions taken by the engineers,
who saw the collision coming in time
to slow tiII. Among t:assengers who
received injuries, all said to be slight,
are the following: A. C. Knight, C. -L.
Schiver, Joseph Walker, San Wolfe,
C. P. Kennedy, Mrs. T. W. \Vilson, M.
