A serious accident occurred on Thursday night in the shunting yard of the Great Western Railway at Bristol, causing the death of the driver (Richard Hayes, stationed in this town), of the goods train for Carmarthen, timed to leave at 9.25 p.m. It appears that the goods train was made up, and the driver unfortunately, mistook one of the signals, started his engine, and ran over a safety point. The next moment a passenger train was seen approaching at considerable speed, and Hayes, probably fearing a collision, leaped on the down line, in front of the approaching engine. The poor fellow was knocked down and killed instantaneously. His head and one of his legs were severed from his body. The fireman escaped with a few bruises, and no harm befell the passenger train. The engine of the goods train was over the hank, and held in that position by the weight of the train behind. Hayes leaves a wife and large family to mourn his loss. He was buried at Bristol. 1sT V.B. THE WELSH REGIMENT.—Orders for the week ending June 2SLh, 1890 Officer for the week, Captain Baker. Orderly sergeants, D. T. Llewellyn and Lance Sergeant Davies.
