Rhode Island 1895 Railroad Accident Reports

Thumbnail image of Rhode Island 1895 Railroad Accident Reports cover

Annual Report of the Railroad Commissioner, for the Year Ending December 31, 1895. Made to the General Assembly at its January Session, 1896.

A detailed statement gives all the accidents that have been reported by the officials of the several steam roads as having occurred in this State during the year 1895, though the reports received from the Rhode Island Hospital and the Woonsocket Hospital show that 25 persons have been treated there for injuries received on account of the railroads of this State, of which no report has been made to me by the several railroad officials. There were also twenty-seven accidents reported as occurring in connection with the street railways, in which 7 persons were killed and 27 were injured.
