As Underground Trains
Collide AtCharing Cross
LONDON, May 17.-V)-Six per-
sons were killed and more than 40
injured, many of them seriously, to-
day in a rear-end collision between
two crowded subway trains.
The disaster was the worst in the
history of London's "underground"
and caused a mad panic in the dark
tunnel between the Charing Cross and
Temple Stations under the heart of
the city.
The two trains, both jammed with
office-bound workers, crashed with
a roar and threw masses of men and
women into splintered wreckage. The
rear car of the first' train and the
head car of the second telescoped.
One of the hundreds of doctors and
nurses mobilized at tan emergency
hospital at the Charing Cross Sta-
tion said many of the injuries were
caused after the wreck when a bat-
tery beneath one of the coaches
showered sparks through the tunnel.
The trapped passengers, believing
the train nad caught fire, fought in
a wild scramble to escape through,
splintered windows.
The leading train was almost at a
standstill when the second train.
crashed into it. The lights were ex-
tinguished and the passengers strug-
gled in darkness. Women screamed.
