Passenger train No. 61, which left the Union depot, Toronto, for Allandale at 8.30 Monday morning, met with an accident at the Bathurst street diamond. A freight, which got on the wrong track owing to a misplaced switch, struck the rear car of 61. The twenty passengers in the car were all more or less jarred by the impact. A. E. Gilchriese, 6 Sullivan street, traveller for A. J. Stewart, wholesale confectioner, received slight injuries from the shock of the collision. He was on his way to Collingwood. He was thrown again at the seat across the car and injured below the ribs. His back also was badly wrenched. A child in the car had her clothes badly torn. She was caught by the dress on the high side of the car and hung there until rescued by her moth some minutes later. She was unhurt, however, and was able to proceed on her journey. The car was detached, and the train proceeded north.
