Bus in Ditch.

Twenty-five Passengers in Mexborough Vehicle

Twenty-five passengers had narrow escapes yesterday Conisborough, when a motor-coach, owned by R. Bates, of Mexborough, toppled into a ditch on Conisborough Common.

The road here is rather narrow, and in passing a lorry, owned by J. Peters, of Conisborough, the bus got on to the grass verge, and slid into the ditch.

The passengers were uninjured and were conveyed to their destination by a relief coach. The ditched bus was later towed out little the worse.
