Wissahickon (Propeller), U80598, collision, 12 May 1882
- Full Text
The prop. WISSAHICKON, coal laden, in tow of the tug ASH, yesterday morning ran into the light canal steamer ANDREW STATLER, which was lying at the Lyon elevator dock. The boat struck hard on her starboard side and badly crushed, the dock also suffering some damage. It is estimated that it will cost at least a $1,000 to repair the STATLER, which is a new boat. The ASH was not to blame for the mishap.
