Motorman Pleads Not Guilty to Charge of Causing Collision.

Wilton Lloyd of 10,702 120th Street, Richmond Hill, motorman of the B. M. T. train which crashed into the rear of another train at the oxford road station, Woodhaven, on Saturday, was arraigned yesterday in the Jamaica Police Court on a technical charge of assault. Lloyd pleaded not guilty and was held in $1,000 for a hearing today.

Assistant District Attorney David Wolff of Queens said that his office had nearly completed an investigation into the wreck in which engineers for the Transit Commission had taken part. It is understood that the engineers made a special examination of the brakes of Lloyd's train yesterday.
