CIP 1.9.1883: Accident on the Railway. —Last Saturday, Richard Perrin, of Gwydir-street. a driver in the employ of the Great Eastern Railway Company, met with a sad accident at Cambridge’ station. It appears that he was crossing the metals and, failing to notice the approach of a goods train that was being shunted, was knocked down by a buffer of one of the trucks striking him on the side. The wheels of the truck passed over his left foot, severely crushing it and cutting off his toes. He was immediately taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, and it was deemed necessary that the limb should he taken off at the ankle. This was done, and the unfortunate man is now progressing favourably.
