DREADFUL CARRIAGE ACCIDENT. On Tuesday night, about seven o'clock, a dreadful and fatal carriage accident happened at Hall Green, on the Stafford-road, about four miles from Birmingham. Mrs. Bradbury, a widcwlady, residing in Church-square, Rowing- ton, near Warwick, drove over to Birmingham in tte course of the day, accompanied by her footman, to take back with her two Misses Birch, friends, who had projected a temporary visit to Rowington. The party started for the residence of Mrs. Bradbury about half-past six o'clock, and proceeded down the Stafford- road. The vehicle was a four-wheeled one, drawn by a cob. On nearing the Horse Shoe public house, about four miles from Birmingham the party met a couple of bicyclists one on either side of the road, about 150 yards from the Horse Shoe. The horse, on seeing the bicycles, suddenly took fright, and, turning round, bolted in the direction it had come from. Mrs. Bradbury, who was driving, lost all control of the animal, which ran at headlong speed along the road, until it came to some pre- mises occupied by a man named Nossiter, a dealer in skins, a distance of about a hundred yards from where the horse was frightened. Here the animal, driven by Mrs Bradbury, who was pulling the reins desperately, ran against a brick pillar at one side of a gateway, and the terrible force of the collision threw all the occu- pants of the carriage into the roadway. Mrs Bradbury alighted on her head, and received a fracture of the skull and other injuries, which rendered her insensible. One of the young ladies in the carriage, after falling out, was dragged by her cloak for some distance, but beyond a laceration of the cheek sustained no serious injury. The other young lady was un- injured; and the footman, who fell upon his head and shoulder, was only slightly stunned. Three navvies, who were passing, picked up Mrs Bradbury, and carried her, in an insensible condition, into the house of Mr Plumber, where she immediately expired.
