Peculiar Accident in Byram Township
Truck Goes Down Embankment and on Lackawanna Tracks--Was
Necessary to Have Wrecker to Move Truck from Tracks
An odd Automobile accident happened about 10:30 last
Thursday night in Byram township. Leonard M. Hull, of Andover, was driving
a truck belonging to Oliver Harris, of Newton R.D. 3, along a dirt road
parallel to the D. L. & W. R. R. and went over a 15 foot embankment
landing on the tracks.
The truck lay crosswise on the tracks and could not
be moved until a wrecker was called and the men drove to a point opposite
the accident and pulled the truck back on its wheels. It was then necessary
for the wrecker to back down the railroad track.
The truck was not badly damaged and the driver escaped
State trooper Terrance Gillen, of Newton, investigated
