4 killed, 21 hurt in train derailing
By United Press
Capreol, Ont., June 27—Four persons were killed and 21 injured when Train No. 4 on the Canadian National Railway bound from Winnipeg to Toronto was derailed four miles east of here early today.
The wreck was caused by a washout, Canadian National officials said.
Relief trains were dispatched from Toronto. Physicians and nurses from Sudbury Junction and other nearby towns meanwhile hastened to the scene to care for the injured.
Unprecedented flood conditions,said the statement of the Canadian National, were responsible for the accident. The train rolled into an embankment, not off a bridge as originally reported, officials stated.
