    Looking for records of a 1918 train accident Lunenburg, MA

    JC REARDON Newbie

      Hello,

       

      I'm looking for information on an incident that occurred on January 29, 1918, in Lunenburg, MA in which at least one person was killed when a train hit the automobile they were in.

       

      I checked the DoT reports and it seems to cover only incidents in which persons or property ON a train are damaged.

       

      The U.S. Department of Transportation Library web site:

      https://dotlibrary.specialcollection.net/Home

       

      Any thoughts of where an accident like this might have been recorded?  I have the death certificate, but all it says is "Automobile struck by R. R. train" - - surely this sort of thing would have resulted in some sort of official investigation, or fine, or... something... ?

       

      Thanks!

      JC
