Fatal Accident at Waterloo
Fatal Accident--A man by the name of Patrick
Quinsey, the keeper of a boarding shanty near Waterloo, on the M. &
E. R. R., was run over by an excursion train on the Sussex Railroad
at 9 o'clock P.M., near the engine house at Waterloo on Friday Last.
He had been intoxicated during the day, and wandering about in the dark
attempted to cross the track just as the train was moving down the grade
at that point. He was seen by the engineer but too late, the engine
passed over him cutting off both legs and part of one hand. Medical
attendance was promptly procured by Superintendent Case, but death ended
the poor fellow's sufferings at nine o'clock the following day.
