According to witnesses of the acci¬ dent, Abronovich had been working on the elevation and walked down the embankment to get a drink of water, and stepped directly in. the path of the oncoming train. It is said that he made an attempt to get out of the way, but was unable to do so. The upper part of the body from the hips up was badly mangled and crushed from the impact.
Little is known of Abronovich, since he had been employed on the project for only 10 days. In one of his pockets, was a letter from a nephew, signed, "P. Abronovicli," and mailed from Rugby, Colorado.
The body was removed to the Nei- decker Undertaking establishment where it was held pending possible word from relatives. Nothing had been heard up to Tuesday, and the body was buried by the county Tues¬ day morning. 7~ £L£}^ / *fj( &
