A tin .vagon, belonging to Mr. Hyman, of Morriston, and loaded with tmplates for Swansea, was pro ceeding along the road, when a tram car came along, and at the spot named the two came into collision. The wagon w as driven by Edmund Thomas, Pentre, and sitting on the • wagon was a young man, named Charles Pugh, of Eaton-roaoi, Brynhyfryd, a single man. it seems that Pugb was ha-ving a. lift down the road, and when the collision took place he was thrown oft the wagon into the gutter, and several boxes oi tmplates fell .upon him oy the force of the impact..

HOW THE ACCIDENT OCCURRED. Further inquiries shew that the tin-wagon, which was proceeding in the direction of Swansea collided witii ear o. 19, driven by Dd. Davies, the car proceeding in tne direc- tion of Morriston. It is alleged that the tin-wagon pulled over on to tne wrong side oi the road, which is extremely narrow at this point, and at which several accidents have happened- j It was clear of the front part of the car, and it is alleged that the driver inadvertently pulled the wrong rem- as the car was pass- ing, witn the result that tie wagon turned into the middle of the car, broke the brass vestibule rod, and then caught in the back of the car, the step of which W86 nearly krocked in and the guard covering the wheels being nearly torn oft. The result of the impact was that the tm- wagon turned over and the unfortunate young man fell, with some heavy tinplate boxes on him, crushing him badly. The driver was taken into the Cooper's Arms, where it was found he was suffering from severe shock, and subsequently home to Pcntrc Estyll, whilst the body of deceased was taken bome to Eaton-ioad. PITIFUL SCENE WITNESSED. Tha epct where the accident happened is about 150 yards below the new Landore Church, on 'the left band side proceeding to Morriston. Pugh fell in the gutter, "and when he was extricated he was bleeding pro- fusely from the head. As quickly as pos- sible he was released, but he oniv 6urvived a short time. His body was placed in the came c."1I" and was at the ixittom of Field- street, where the c'ice Station is situated, met with the &mbutaace. A number of dis- tressed females quickly c-ygregated, aid a pitiful slg-ht. was witnessed of the deceased s sister wringing ijer hands with grief. Mean- while Edmund Thomas, also a young man, was being attended to in the Cooper's Arms, and was subsequently carried out, placed on a cab, and taken to his home. lhe Corporation have had under consider- ation the widening of this part of the road for some considerable time. A measurement taken shows that the left hand side of the road coming towards Swansea—is two feet wider than the right, but it is stated that drivers from Morriston prefer the right hand side about this spot. The tin-wagon was I considerably damaged, and the oar with which it cajne into contact was, after coming to Swansea, driven to the depot.
