The following article appeared in The Hopkinsville Kentuckian on Christmas Day, 1917. It describes the terrible train wreck at Shepherdsville, and identifies most of those who were either killed or injured in the wreck. We've divided it into sections for easier reading. Read it left to right, and then down the page.
While some of the details were inaccurately reported, this article is remarkably accurate for such an early report of this tragedy.
