FROM FRANK
Sellersgen@aol.com

Terrible accident involving a Sellers family member more than a century ago,
as reported in a newspaper clipping from the October 6, 1883 front page of
the Colorado Springs Daily Gazette of Colorado Springs, CO:

"Philadelphia, October 5. -- An in-bound train on the north Pennsylvania
branch of the Philadelphia and Reading railroad ran into a street car at
Susquehanna avenue and American street this morning. The car was demolished and all
the passengers more or less injured. ... Among the injured was a woman
named Mary Sellers who was terribly mangled. ... She and several others are
expected to die.....

"There was no conductor on the car, and the driver's duty required him to
guide his team, see the fare deposited in the box and at the same time watch for
trains at the railroad crossing. The railway company had no safety gate at
the corssing, although they had been directed by the city council a year ago
to errect one at that point. The driver had stopped the car while the
north-bound train passed, but had not noticed the appraoch of a train on the other
track. He started his horses and before the passengers had a moment's
notice the south-bound train, running 25 miles an hour, struck the car on the
side...Ambulances from the Episcopal hospital arrived quickly and most of the
sufferers were removed to that institiution."

Frank Sellers
