Collision between Motorcycle and Horse Drawn Van

A collision between a motorcycle and a horse-drawn butcher’s van near Minneymoor on Saturday evening resulted in the driver of the vehicle, George William Goodwin, of Daylands Avenue and his assistant being thrown off.

The horse bolted but happily was pulled up by pedestrians after careering only about 50 yards along the Doncaster – Sheffield round.

The motorcyclist, William Edwin Reynolds, insurance agent, of Hameline Road, Conisborough, received slight head and facial injuries, but his wife Christine, the pillion passenger, escaped unhurt.

The van was owned by Mr JH Trickett, butcher of Church Street.
