Several articles appeared in Salt Lake City and neighboring newspapers reporting the accident and his death. Duffin was a locomotive engineer for the Oregon Short Line when his train collided with an automobile trailer truck loaded with gasoline. The collision near Bountiful, Utah sent a spray of burning gasoline into the engine cab of the train, igniting the clothing of both Duffin and the fireman who leaped to safety under orders from Duffin. Duffin, however, remained with his train until it stopped half a mile away, his actions believed to have saved the lives of passengers. Leonard Duffin died of his very severe burns in the hospital two days after the accident.5,6
