William Richardson death 1888, Pancoast

Surnames: Richardson
I am interested in William Richardson, who died in an accident in the Pancoast mine, Lackawanna County, in September 1888, age 33.

From the Scranton Wochenblatt, September 20, 1888, page 1:
"Wm. Richardson wurde am Donnerstag in der Grube durch eine fallende Kohlenmasse augenblicklich getodtet."
Translated (I think): Wm. Richardson was killed immediately on Thursday in the pit by a falling mass of coal.

Is there any additional information to be found about this accident?

Many thanks!
