MOKDAY, MAY 26, 1958 1 Dead 8 Missing in Oil Blaze Tanker, Barge Collide in Delaware River WILMINGTON, De,, W—An oil (anker and a gasoline-laden uarge burst Into flames after colliding in the rain-swept Delaware niver is miles south of here last night. One man is known dead and eight are missing. The vessels were identified by the Coast Guard as (he 10 441-ton tanker Michael, with a carso of crude oil, and the motor barge E.D. Dodge. Scaring, gasoline - fed flames swept the badly smashed Dodge, which carried a crew of nine. She was reported split in two with ihe stern section sinking. The Michael, also burning, was able to limp away from the scene and later reported its fire under control. Rescued Man Dies One man, nude except for (he life jacket which kept him afloat, died minutes after he was picked up by rescuers. He was not identified but was believed to be a crewman on the Dodge. Two other men, also Dodge crew- members, were rescued from the water and taken to Wilmington General Hospital suffering from burns and shock. One was identified as Sjur Tellifsen, 20, of Brooklyn, N.Y. No Word of Others There was no immediate word of the fate of the other six men aboard the Dodge. The Michael, bound for Paulsboro, N.Y., from Persia with n crew of 40, reported two men missing—the third mate and a seaman. The collision was the third such tragedy within 10 days in this buss' shipping area. On May 15, two ships collided and burned in the nearby Delaware and Chesapeake Canal, killing four men. Last week three men drowned when a freighter and tug smashed together in the Delaware near Chester, Pa. Tellifsen said he was sleeping below decks on the barge: "When the terrible crash woke me up I didn't wait io find out what the trouble was," he said. "I jumped out the nearest porthole and swam until 1 reached a buoy. "There were flames all around and I could see other men floating and swimming in the water bul I was unable to help them. Pretty soon a tug saw me on the buoy and picked me up " . Tellifsen said his barge, captained by John D. Elliott of Col- lingsdale. Pa., carried 1G.500 barrels of gasoline and was bound from Camdcn, N.J., to Baltimore. The river, broadening as it becomes the Delaware Bnv a feu- miles farther south. Is about three miles wide at the scene of the collision.
