The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Phoenix (Propeller), collision, 10 Oct 1845

Full Text

At about 2:00 yesterday, while off Dunkirk, the propeller PHOENIX and the new steamer TROY came in collision, by which the latter was considerably injured. The PHOENIX struck the TROY forward of the wheel house. There were 3 of the hands asleep in their rooms, which was thus unceremoniously entered, and one of them was firmly caught in a half bent position, that the timbers around him had to be sawed away before he could be released, and yet he suffered no material injury. The TROY has been unladen and goes upon the railway for repairs. The PHOENIX had her figure head somewhat damaged.
