Run Over and Killed at Poplar

Post by Karen on Sat 30 Jul 2011 - 1:08

RUN OVER AND KILLED AT POPLAR.

Mr. Wynne E. Baxter held an inquest at the Town hall, Poplar, yesterday, on the body of Estella Warren, aged three years and 10 months, the daughter of a coachman in the Metropolitan Fire brigade, stationed at the fire station, West India-road, E., who was fatally injured by a van in Hale-street, Poplar, on Thursday last. Alice Warren, aged five, a sister of the deceased, stated that her sister and herself came out of school on Thursday last, and the deceased ran across the road and was knocked down by a cart that was passing. Sarah Ann Cook deposed that she saw a van pass her, and then noticed the deceased lying in the road. She at once picked her up and took her into the school, and gave her to a teacher, who attended to her. Witness did not see the accident, and could not say how it occurred; neither did she see another cart in the street at the time. James Murray, a carman in the employ of Messrs. Pickford, stated that he had no idea that an accident had occurred until a gentleman called at the office and informed a clerk that such was the case. Witness said that he saw the two children when his van passed the school; one of them had her back to the road, and was standing on the kerb. A cart passed him just before he got to the schools, and was going in the opposite direction. The coroner remarked that it was plain that other cart had nothing to do with the accident. This evidence was borne out by the van-boy, who also said that after the van had passed the school he saw the deceased lying in the road but thought she had fallen there. Dr. Corley, of 152, East India-road, stated that when he was called to the child he found her dead. The left side of the face and cheek was badly grazed, and covered in blood, the right collar-bone was broken, and there were some bruises about the shoulder. In witness's opinion the wheel must have caught the deceased and thrown her violently to the ground. The cause of death was shock to the system, and probably internal injuries. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death."
