On Christmas Eve 1917, an overcrowded, out-of-control streetcar exited the Mount Washington tunnel, crashing into pedestrians. Twenty-three were killed and more than eighty injured in the worst transit incident in Pittsburgh history.
We are delighted to welcome local author Dr. Mary Jane Kuffner Hirt, who will explore the aftermath and explain the tragic history of the Mount Washington transit tunnel disaster.
