Apparently Fails to See
Or Hear Danger
From Rear

SALT LAKE, Nov. 30,—Ole Anderson,
27 years of age, son of
Carl Anderson, 416 Anderson avenue.
Murray, was instantly killed
Sunday when he was struck by a
Denver & Rio Grande Western
passenger train at Fifty-third
South street.

According to those who investigated
the case, the Oregon Short
Line tracks run on one side of
the highway and the Rio Grande
tracks on the other. Anderson
was driving toward Salt Lake and
the train was approaching from
his rear. Apparently not seeing
the oncoming train, Anderson is
said to have driven onto the
track directly in front of it.
