Edward S. Pease (Propeller), U136025, collision, 12 Jun 1900
- Full Text
While racing for a tow in the lake at Cleveland Monday, the tugs CHAMBERLAIN and DELTA were engaged in a three-cornered collision, in which the DELTA was stove in and nearly sunk. She was raced for the shore and put on the beach just in time to save her from sinking in deep water. The DELTA, of the independent line, and the CHAMBERLAIN, of the trust, were lying near the mouth of the river, when the PEASE whistled for a tug they both started in pursuit. The reached the steamer neck and neck, and in rounding to, the DELTA collided with the steamer and stove her bow in. Her engines were reversed and in backing away she struck the CHAMBERLAIN and smashed her stern. The engines were set at full speed ahead and her skipper headed her for the river, leaving the trust tug to bring in the tow.
