GKEtESFORD. THE FATAL ACCIDENT AT THE STATION.âOn Friday last a lamentable accident occurred at this station. An old woman residing in Wrexham, named Ann Ryan, was knocked down by the express train from Hereford and killed. It is supposed that deceased, who was a rag gatherer, came down the steps leading from Gresford to the station, and then walked down to the Rossefct end of the plat- form and crossed in front of the down train, which was coming at full speed. She was run over im- mediately, and cut to pieces. Lloyd Thelwall, one of the railway police, was very nearly run over in trying to save her. The engine driver saw the deceased crossing the line, and sounded his whistle, and applied the breaks, but was unable to stop the train. An inquest was held on the body on Satur- day, before the coroner, B. H. Thelwall, Esq., at the Griffin Inn, and a verdict of accidental death was returned.
