ACCIDENT. — On Tuesday afternoon, in endeavouring to avoid a collision while passing a van near the “Red Lion,” the wheel of a light carriage driven by Mrs. Ricardo, of Ray Mead, came in contact with the kerb and overturned the carriage. Fortunately, Mrs. Ricardo retained possession of the reins, and the pony did not bolt. Assistance was rendered by P.c. Boulter and Mr. Simpson, but beyond being bruised and shaken Mrs. Ricardo was not injured.
