A serious accident occurred on the Metropolitan Railway about a mile south of this town, on Saturday morning. The 7.15 passenger car left going south a few minutes late, followed by the work car. When opposite Graham's farm the passenger car had to stop on account of the snow, and while standing, the work car came up behind and crashed into it. The vestibules of both cars were demolished, and the passengers were pretty well shaken up, but fortunately no person was injured. How the motor-man on the work car escaped is a wonder, as the vestibule was badly smashed. It is said the cause of the accident was on account of the window in front of the motor-man on the work car being covered with ice preventing him from seeing the other car.
