Hugh A. Goring

Special Officer Hugh Goring was struck and killed by a train near the William Street crossing in the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern rail yards in Buffalo, New York, at about 3:30 pm.

He was making his last rounds of the day when he attempted to cross a set of tracks between two rail cars not realizing that a locomotive was shunting cars on the track to make a coupling. He was crushed between the two rail cars.

Officer Goring was a U.S. Army veteran and had served with the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad Police Department for five months. He was survived by his wife and two children from a previous marriage.
