Philadelphia & Western
 I was the official photographer for the company at this wreck.  The operator was new to this equipment, the controller stuck in the full power position and he did not know what to do to cut the power to the controller.  He applied the brakes about 2 miles out from the 69th St Terminal, it slowed the car down but not enough to stop it from hitting the terminal.
I think they banned him from the P&W and he is still driving buses for the company.
