Final Blast Of Diesel Swerves Car Info Ditch Death rode within inches 6f a woman driver on highway 44, where the road crosses the Milwaukee railroad track, about 1:30 Tuesday afternoon. The close call also resulted in i mystery, which probably will •emain unsolved. :Nobody knows he name of the woman whose vehicle came close to being smashed by a westbound freight. As it was, she escaped unharmed, and the car was in no way damaged. Engineer Saves Day The Milwaukee engineer noted the car headed riorth as he approached the crossing. The car did not indicate it was slowing <?r going to stop. He whistled vigorously as the train thundered down on the crossing. The woman, looking up startled and realizing the situation swerved hqr car into a snowbank on the east side of the highway, only a few feet from the crossing itself, A gusty:wind with snow was prevailing at the time, probably obscuring ner vision. As the engine thundered by, the engineer, looking back,,, was not certain whether the car and its occupant were unharmed. He thought so, but as the train went through Cylinder he dropped off a note to the agent, telling of the incident. The Cylinder agent called the Whittemore agent, C. B. Bergeson, and reported the facts. Sitting In Snow Bank Bergeson , drove out , to the Crossing and was relieved to find the woman' sitting peacefully; in her car with the motor running, awaiting assistance. He called Elbeit's Garage in Whittemore, who pulled the car out- of" the snow bank. Nobody asked the woman's name. . , In the meantime, the railroad call from Cylinder to Whittemore had also been picked up in Emmetsburg, somehow got to the state police radio, got on the air, and Deputy Sheriff Don Wood and slate patrolmen raced to the scene. They found nothing except the good news that the engineer's extra warning blast had averted a tragedy.
