car coll is ion Satnrday afternoon, at
Coldwell, on the Spokane and Coeur
d'Alene branch of the Spokana A Idaho
railway, 88 milea east of Spokane.
OfBialsef the line nave not made a
statement as to responsibility for the
wrack. It hi said the eaetbound train
did not take a sidetrack aa it bad been
ordered. It to incomprehensible why
the motorrnon did not avoid the col
lision, as the accident occurred on a
straight track. The motorman of the
westbound train Is among the dead.
Both trains were running at high
speed, especially the westbound train,
and were presumably beyond control.
The wrecked cars were ground to
gether to one confused mass. Tba in
juries are of all kinds. Legs and anna
are broken and beads and bodies ere
crashed. Bruleee and scratches from
sDlintered wood and broken slaea are
numerous,' and Internal hurts, which it
la feared will swell the list of fatalities,
were tofl looted.
The first ear of the train, the smok
er, was so smashed that nothing but
the trucks remained. It was crowded
with men and scarcely one of them es
caped alive and uninjured.
This is the Art.sertoos wreck to the
history of the road. The track was
cleared to about an boar and a half.
