Train Kills Aged Rancher

Death under the wheels of a D & R G W locomotive took Lewis Edwards, 74, Castilla rancher, as he stepped into the train's path shortly after noon Saturday near his home.
Edwards, who was troubled with poor eyesight, had waited until one train passed, but stepped directly into the path of another approaching on the second track. His son, F E Edwards, working in a barn nearby rushed to his aid but the elder Edwards had expired. Members of the train crew, brought the cars to a prompt halt.
Edwards had been picking up coal on and near the tracks prior to the trains' approach. The body was taken to the Deseret Mortuary in Provo.
The rancher, whose wife is dead, is survived by two sons and three daughters: F.E. and L.M. Edwards, Castilla; Mrs. Sarah Albertson and Mrs Hattie Euell of Idaho; and Mrs. Elza Clart of Santaquin.
Sheriff E. G. Durnell and Deputy Sheriff Walter Durrant, accompanied by Deputy County Attorney Dean Terry, investigated the accident early Saturday afternoon. No charges will be filed.
