MANCHESTER COLLISION. SEVERAL PERSONS INJURE!) AT THE CENTRAL STATION. Sixteen people were injured in a railway accident outside the Central Station at. Machesteron Saturday morning. The Central Station is used both by the Cheshire Lines and by the Midland Company. A dense fog kept a Liverpool train (containing chiefly Urmston and Flixton residents on their way to busi- ness) waiting on a high viaduct outside the station. Just after the signal dropped to let the train in, two coupled engines, tenders iirst,, charged the train, which had that second stirred. The impact smashed three of the rear coaches, lifting them from the metals. The cries of the passengers brought a crowd of people from the station. It was found that only a few had received serious injuries, and of 16 who were taken to the Royal Infirmary only four were detained. These were James Wilson Wiseman Wilson Alcock Stephen Burrows, of Urmston and George W. Mellor, of Fiixton. All four were last night reported to be recovering. Some of the battered passengers left blood behind them. In one broken compartment lay a newspaper plentifully splashed: while another contained a pair of boots which had been cut from a man who had been held fast by a pile of debris. The companies have not yet fixed the liability for the accident. FOG AND FROST. An overdue mssenger train dashed into some coal waggons at Widnes Station in the dense fog of Saturday evening. The brakesman was badly in- jured, and had a narrow escape from death, the brake van and two, trucks being smashed and the engine damaged. SeveraLin the passenger train were cut and bruised. Fourteen degrees of frost were registered at Market Harborough on Sunday morning. Leeds was enveloped in darkness, the electric cars running illuminaied all day. Fog rendered all outdoor sport impossible at Leicester, and several minor street casualties were reported. There was a sharp frost in the evening. At Wednesbury and the adjoining districts the fog was the worst for many years, and the railway goods traffic was suspended. Several people walked into canals near Tipton, but were rescued.
