    R. T. Smith Narrowly Escapes When Train Demolishes His Car--R. T. Smith has a narrow escape Tuesday when his car was demolished on a railroad crossing at Wilmot. Mr. Smith had left home to do some work at the Pugh gin and arrived in Wilmot about 8:30. He turned right to cross the railroad south crossing in Wilmot and saw he was going to meet a car on the crossing and pulled to the right of the road. He stated that due to the rough condition of the crossing the motor of his car stopped and he allowed it to roll back down the steep incline, then started it and again attempting to cross. Mr. Smith said he looked down the track the first time he reached it but a view of the approach of a train is obstructed by the close location of a water tank until one reaches the tracks. As he made the second attempt to cross he cleared the rails except with the rear wheels and when they hit the west rail the road bed of the crossing was so low that his motor again stalled. He was unaware of the approaching train, a south-bound freight, until the passing motorist called to him to abandon his car and get out of the way. It was then that he saw the danger and was able to get several feet away when the freight struck the car carrying it about fifty feet and completely demolishing it. It was raining at the time of the accident and visibility was poor. Mr. Smith stated that due to his physical condition he hates to walk but never-the-less considers himself lucky that he is still here to walk. This crossing has been the scene of several fatal accidents. [August 16, 1945 or 48]
