SCOTT, GENERAL Steamer and Steamer BUNKER HILL in collision near Sandusky. Damages slight
      Buffalo Courier (casualty list)
      March 17, 1848

      . . . . .

The steamers BUNKER HILL and GENERAL SCOTT came in collision on Monday evening last between eight and nine o'clock. The two boats left the dock at Sandusky City at about the same time, one bound up, the other bound down. In passing out through the crooked passage, the SCOTT left the regular track and was about, passing out ahead of the BUNKER HILL, when the latter boat headed towards and struck the SCOTT sideways. The wheelhouse was somewhat injured, and the passengers, particularly the ladies, much frightened. Detroit Adv.
