Quincy Derailment 1989

From the "Quincy Valley Post-Register," Quincy, WA

May 25, 1989

The story goes that a drunk driver got stuck on the tracks at the Columbia Way/Road P NW crossing. A westbound train, lead by OWY 9070 hit the car, dragging it a few hundred feet, when the car clipped the industry switchstand on the north side of the tracks, causing the train to derail. The only casualty was the driver of the car. The crew escaped with minor injuries.
