A Pitch In of Mexborough Buses

On Saturday evening as two omnibuses conveying passengers were proceeding Denaby to Mexborough, they got jammed with another ‘bus coming in the opposite direction, in Doncaster-road, Mexborough.

The conveyances were knocked about considerably, and one of the drivers was flung from his seat. The passengers, however, escaped with a slight shock.

It is said that the accident was occasioned by an attempt of the driver of one of the conveyances to pass his rival in a narrow part of the road.
