Special Deputy Marshal Jessie Bristol and Special Deputy Marshal William Pross were killed in a collision between two trains in the Northern Pacific yards in Chicago, Illinois.

Both were in a group of four deputy marshals who were assigned to patrol the Wisconsin Central Railroad to combat crime. All four were on a Wisconsin Central train standing near a crossing, at 16th and Brown streets at about 1:00 pm, when it was struck by an oncoming Baltimore and Ohio train on the same tracks.

Special Deputy Bristol was killed instantly. Special Deputy Pross was taken to Cook County Hospital where he died three hours later before undergoing surgery. A third special deputy was seriously wounded, but survived.

Special Deputy Bristol was survived by his wife. He also served as a special officer for the Wisconsin Central Railroad.
