While traveling at a high rate of speed through the cut about two miles west of Granger last Saturday afternoon, No. 6 collided with a gasoline motor car and instantly killed W.M. Blunt, one of the occupants of the car.
According to the evidence given at the Coronerís inquest, Blunt who was connected with the block signal service, was going west with a companion, on a trip of inspection of the line when they heard No. 6 approaching. They jumped from the car and attempted to remove it from the tracks when the train struck.
Blunt was a young man about twenty years of age and was a resident of California to which state his remains were shipped. After visiting the place of the accident and hearing the evidence the Coronerís jury brought in a verdict of accidental death.
