|Ottawa Citizen 29 October 1959|
Second crash of train in four days.
Yesterday's car-train collision which wiped out an entire family of four was the second level crossing accident in two days for the CNR-CPR pool train No. 34 from Toronto.
The same engineer, Earl Fergus, of Smiths Falls, was in the cab for both crashes. Both were in the same general location and both occurred at approximately the same time of morning.
Yesterday, Mr. and Mrs. Warren Sim and their two children, Wayne, aged 7 and Peggy, aged 5, died when their small car was hit on the Hunt Club Road.
Twenty-four hours and ten minutes earlier than yesterday's crash Wilbur Wilson, 51-year-old farmer of RR5.McCarthy Road, escaped death when No. 34 demolished his truck at the Walkley Road crossing.
