    On September 21, 1910, at 12:15 PM, tragedy struck Wells County, Indiana. Two interurban electric railroad cars collided approximately one-half mile north of the small village of Kingsland in Wells County, Indiana. Curving tracks, a woods nearby on the wrong side of the curve, the high speeds of the cars, and misunderstood orders (or worse, disobeyed orders or pure negligence) were the ingredients for this catastrophe. Forty-one persons died as a direct result of the Kingsland Wreck. Six persons survived the crash. One man died within two years of he wreck, his demise probably hastened from the injuries he sustained that fateful day. This book is intended to be a memorial to those lost in this tragedy, and to those whose lives were forever changed by this horrific event.
