Struck by Train

Mrs. Ann Coffee, aged sixty years, was struck by the 12:22 train on the Central railroad on Monday afternoon about one mile north of Middletown station. Mrs. Coffee was on a visit to her sister, and was engaged in picking berries for Daniel Wilson. She started to cross the tracks directly in front of the approaching engine. The enigineer of the train signalled for her to get off the track, but she either did not hear the whistle, or supposed she could cross the track before the engine reached her. She was struck in the body by the engine and one of her legs was nearly severed from her body. Her remains were brought to Red Bank on Monday afternoon by Undertaker R. T. Smith. Mrs. Coffee's sister sent word to her son in New York, who came down and took charge of the body.
