Joseph George Pitre:  Death:  The Bangor Daily News (Bangor, ME), Friday, 19 April 1907:  Killed While Coupling Cars.  Another Life Lost, in Maine Central Yard -- George Petrie, the Victim.  Crushed between a yard engine and a baggage-car, by what appears to be a blunder by someone, George Petrie lost his life at about 7.15 last night, in the western Maine Central yard.  Petrie was a lusty young fellow, 25 years old, and came from Bathurst, N.B.  He had been in the Maine Central employ for about six months and at the time of his death was working on the yard engine in charge of Yard Conductor Charles M. Oakes and Engineer Peterson.  The crew was making up train No. 2, the west-bound passenger, due to leave at 8.35, and the engine had backed up to pull out a baggage car.  The couplings failed to work on the first attempt and the engine was started ahead.  Petrie was adjusting the couplings on the car when the engine came back suddenly, and Petrie was caught and badly crushed, his spine and ribs being broken in numerous places.  Dr. McCann was called but the man was beyond all relief long before the physician arrived.  Just how the accident happened appears to be a matter to be cleared up by further investigation.  Inquiry made last night by Coroner T. J. Finnigan and County Attorney Patten seemed to lead to a confusion between Conductor Oakes and Engineer Peterson as to whether there was an order to 'go ahead,' while Petrie was on the track.  As Friday is a holiday, the inquest will be held on Saturday.  Petrie has a sister in Bangor, Mrs. Daniel Hastings of 18 Walter street.  The remains will be taken to Bathurst for interment, after the inquest.
