Man Run Over By a Waggon

Post by Karen on Thu 21 Jul 2011 - 0:21

KILLED BY A COAL WAGGON.

Yesterday afternoon Mr. George Collier held an inquiry at the London hospital regarding the death of Edward Walland, aged 73, a greengrocer. The deceased on Saturday went to Spitalfields market, and his wife hearing shortly afterwards that he was in the London hospital, went there. He told her that he was wheeling his barrow along Commercial-street when the driver of a waggon heavily laden with coal drove his horses against him, knocked him down, and the wheel went over both legs, smashing one up. He complained that he could have got out of the way had the driver warned him earlier. Several witnesses confirmed this view, considering that the driver, William Partridge, turned the corner carelessly, and only called out when a yard from the deceased; whereas if he had left him alone he would have gone on instead of stopping, and so avoided the accident. The jury found that death was due to a broken leg caused by the driver of the van, in not pulling up his horse in time.
