Michael Pitre:  The Charlottetown Guardian (PEI), Thursday, 24 August 1944:  Truck Driver Killed in Crash Yesterday - Michael Peters, 35, of Augustine Cove was instantly killed yesterday afternoon about one o'clock when a six-ton truck loaded with gravel that he was driving crashed into the side of a west bound freight at Richmond Station.  The truck was travelling east and the driver apparently in an effort to avoid hitting the train at the last minute swerved to the right, sheared off the wig wag sign post and hit the second car of the train sideways.  The truck is a total wreck and body was trapped in the cab making it necessary to cut the frame to remove it.  The truck belonged to J. F. MacWilliams of Tryon.  A coroner's jury was empanelled by coroner Dr. W. B. Howatt of Summerside.  They viewed the body and the scene of the accident and then adjourned till four-thirty this afternoon.  The members of the jury are: J. P. Gaudet, Linus McDonald, James A. McNeil, Leo McNally, and Lester McDougall, all of Richmond and Ruben Enman and Kenneth Enman of Springfield.  The deceased is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Fidele Peters of Augustine Cove and is survived by his wife and three children.  Four brothers also survive, Amos in Borden, Wilfred, Augustine Cove, Peter, Carlston and John in Charlottetown.
