Full Text

Another serious collision occurred on the river above Detroit this morning. The steambarges [sic] LEADER and DUNSMORE crashed together and the LEADER immediately sunk. Her crew struggled in the water, but it is believe all were rescued. The accident was due to an incompetant helmsman. The LEADER is owned by N. & R. Mills of Maryville.
