MAN KILLED BY LOCOMOTIVE NEAR W"VLIET

Carl Wilklow, 33, Menands road, Menands, whose body was found beside the railroad tracks at Black Bridge crossing, outside Watervliet, early yesterday was killed by a locomotive backing from the Troy yards into Colonie, Coroner J. Gregory Nealon announced after an investigation. The coroner said an autopsy indicated the fatality occurred between 4 and 5 a. m. The body was found at 5:30. Several trains had passed that point, near Maplewood, Colonie, during that period, he said, but examination of the engines indicated the engine of Train 604 from Montreal, due in Troy at 3:57, had run over the man as it was backing into Colonie after being detached from the train. The autopsy revealed both legs and the left arm were broken, and death resulted from a compound fracture of the skull. Wilklow was an employe of the Watervliet arsenal and formerly lived in Warsaw, Wyoming. The body was found by Charles Zeller, 56 Alden street, Colonie, watchman for a coal company near the crossing. Identity was established from an automobile operator's license in Wilklow's pocket.
