|Ottawa Citizen 14 August 1967|
Train slices car, four die.
Four people, three of them children, were killed when a CPR dayliner express from Montreal demolished their car at a level crossing between Gatineau Point and Gatineau shortly after 9 p.m. yesterday.
Stalled on tracks
Arthur Chartrand, 34 year-old husband and father of the victims, and his father, Arthur Chartrand, Sr., jumped from the 1956 model convertible when it stalled on the tracks in the path of the onrushing train.
The two men made frantic efforts to push the car to safety. They jumped clear only seconds before the impact.
