Edward Maul

Edward Maul, a switchman in the “Q” yards at Galesburg, met a horrible death Monday morning. He was assisting in breaking up a train in the yards south of the depot. He had been turning the switches and signaling the engine to move the cars. The engineer on the engine had seen him just a moment before the accident. Then he stepped in front of the engine drawing a train of freight cars. It is believed that he slipped and fell. The engine and eight cars passed over his body before the train was stopped. He was then dragged from beneath the wheels. He was taken to the hospital where he died in about two hours. — Macomb Journal.
