Accident on South Shore Railroad

Shocking Accident on the South Shore Railroad

Last evening as the six o’clock evening train from Boston to Cohasset was going with considerable speed between West Hingham and Hingham, the centre passenger car of the train broke from its shackles, and tumbling down a slight embankment, fell over on its side.  The passengers experienced a heavy shock, and were thrown about in a promiscuous manner.
