The accident, along Queen City Drive near Frederick Street, occurred as Bradley, who was riding on the side of a railcar train that was moving on the track when he struck the handrail of a standing locomotive on an adjacent track. The report also stated that the train conductor and Bradley were riding on ladders on the same side of the final car of the train. As the train reversed down the track at a speed of approximately 9 mph, it approached three locomotives parked on the adjacent track when the accident occurred.
