The Erie west-bound passenger train No. 5 jumped the track and rolled at a small overpass called the River Styx Trestle on  March 22, 1899 near Rittman, Ohio. The Engineer was killed at the wreck. During the years after the wreck, many reputable people heard the sound of a ghostly  train crashing in the vicinity.
