A Frightened Passenger

A Frightened Passenger.

One of the passengers by the Liverpool and Hull express, which crashed into the Midland excursion train at Hexthorpe, was a woman from Denaby.

She observed one of the killed with pieces of timber in his neck, and in order to extricate the unfortunate victim some portions of the woodwork had to be sawn away.

The shocking sights which presented themselves on all hands unhinged the woman, and she left the line , and ran across the fields in the direction of her home.
