TRACKMAN IS KILLED OUTRIGHT
Wylie Burris of Glen Easton Unable to Hear Train
Wylie Burris, of Glen Easton, a B&O trackman, was struck by a
westbound passenger train No.71 near Glen Easton just before four
o'clock Wednesday evening. A bad wound at the base of the brain on the
left side caused instant death. It is supposed
that the rush of water during the storm prevented him from hearing the train in
time to step out of danger.
Burris leaves a wife and four children.
