At a railroad crossing near Lakeside, Mich., a train struck a wagon containing Miss Hattie Shaver, Miss Hattie Reynolds, Lottie Shaver, Fred Hatch and Charles Wilbeck and killed the first two. Lottie Shaver, a little girl, cannot live. The ladies were carried 113 feet and thrown down an embankment. The men were not seriously hurt. The train gave the usual signal, but Wilbeck drove across the track when the train was in sight.
