Creed, Jack (Unknown - October 12, 1888)

Total Wreck

Bill Barlows Budget - October 17, 1888

A fatal accident occurred down the road last Friday night, about eleven miles east of Lusk. An eastbound stock train ran into a steer lying upon the track, and the engine and twelve out of thirteen cars in the train were derailed and piled upon each other in a heap. Engineer Jack Creed was taken out of the wreck so badly scalded and bruised that he died in about an hour. Two other trainmen were less severely injured. The train had struck a horse between Casper and Glenrock, which had deprived the engine of its headlight, hence the cattle were not seen before the train struck them.

The cattle belonged to the Durbin Bros. and were loaded at Casper. About forty of them were killed and many wounded. Mr. Durbin went down on Saturday, and reached a satisfactory settlement with the company.
