BARRON, Robert G.

A 26-year-old Somerset, Pa., father was killed instantly early this morning when his tractor trailer crashed into the rear of another truck on the Pennsylvania Turnpike three miles west of Carlisle. Victim of the tragedy was Robert G. Barron, 26, of 1030 West Liberty Street, Somerset. Pennsylvania Turnpike Police at Bedford said Barron was killed instantly when his tractor-trailer smashed into the rear of another truck driven by Jack D. Callahan, 25, of New Castle, Pa. Police said Barron was hauling a load of sheetmetal, and the load shifted, crushing him in the cab of the rig. He sustained a broken neck and crushed chest. Police said Barron was apparently traveling at a high rate of speed in rain and fog, but that visibility was good. Both vehicles were traveling east, and after the crash Callahan was able to control his truck and pull to the side of the highway. He assisted police in removing Barron's body from the rig. A native of Somerset County, he was a son of Leroy and Cora (Shaulis) Barron, of Somerset. Besides his parents, he is survived by his widow and two minor children.

The West Virginia Central Accident.
The accident on the West Virginia Central railroad, briefly noted in Saturday’s issue, was caused by the explosion of the boiler of engine No 3, while running backward down the Mineville branch, near Shaw.  Only one passenger car was attached.  The fireman, John Bartlett, was instantly killed, and a passenger, William Hines, had his arm fractured. The engineer, John O’Brien, was blown 75 feet, but escaped with a few cuts. Timothy Cady, a brakeman, was slightly scalded. He was standing by Bartlett’s side and both men were blown about fifty feet. Cady’s escape was wonderful. The engine was blown off the track.
