Lake Shore Electric
The wreck of L.S.E. Niles Car No. 152 just west of Vermilion, Ohio on August 4, 1906. Three people were killed; Wilbur Moody, the motorman, and passengers Frederick Smiley, and James Yerrick. Early the following December another passenger, Andrew Ingrun of Pittsburg, died of injuries he received in the collision. What you can't see in this particular photograph is the fact that nearly 2/3's of the Niles car collapsed in the accident. It is visible from the other side.
