At an early hour Monday morning, B&O engine No 1817, Engineer A. M. Wilt, and Fireman G. W. Gatrell, running backward, met engine No 1625, Engineer J. Miller, Fireman H. C. Mason and Flagman N. E. Hollen, in a crash at Red Rock, between Keyser and Piedmont. Fireman Mason was killed instantly and laid under the wreckage until gotten out by the Keyser wreck train crew which was immediately summoned. His home is at Grafton, where he has a wife who is in a hospital very ill with typhoid fever. He is a native of St George, Tucker county. Engineer Miller sustained a broken collarbone and other injuries, and flagman Hollen is at his home here badly injured. The other trainmen escaped with a shaking up. Engineer Miller had right of way orders to Piedmont on one of the eastbound tracks, and by some mistake the Piedmont operator let Wilt out on the same track, and on a sharp curve he saw the other engine coming and slackened speed, but the other engine forged ahead naturally supposing him to be on the other eastbound track, and the engines came together demolishing the tender on the smaller engine and otherwise wrecking the engine. The larger locomotive is not badly damaged.
