Woman, 30, Killed In Car-Train Crash

A grinding car-train accident west of the city took the life of a 30 year old Allen County Woman.
The accident occured at the Norfolk & Western Railway crossing on the Thomas Road a half mile west of Fort Wayne.
Police investgators said that Mrs. Shelley was southbound on Thomas Road when she entered the crossing and was struck by the eastbound 43 car freight train. Her 1966 Ford Galaxie was destroyed on impact and dragged for about half a mile before the train came to a stop.
The engineer told police he did not see Mrs. Shelley`s car until after the impact. The train, enroute from Chicago to Fort Wayne, was traveling about 58 miles per hour when the accident occured.
Bethelda was an employee of Central Motor Parts Warehouse.
