PONTYCYMMER HOTEL PROPRIE- TORS SMASH. ACTION IN COUNTY COURT. A motor accident on the high road be- tween Cardiff and Cowbridge, in St. Nicholas village, was the subject of an action for dam- ages at Barry County Court on Tuesday, be- fore Judge Hill Kelly, when Nash's Auto- cars, Limited, Cardiff, sued John Morgan Weeks, of Pontycymmer. for £ 86 13s. 9d. Mr. A. Parsons (instructed by Mr. F. O. Shackel), who appeared for the plaintiffs, said that on February 17th last a car, which plaintiff's had been repairing, was being driven to Neath by Ernest F. Sutton for the plaintiffs, and when near St. Nicholas Post Office the accident happened. A baker's cart was standing >n Sutton's right-hand side, while defendant was driving towards him. Sutton was >. n his proper side of the road, and was driving past the baker's cart when defendant, instead of pulling up, en- deavoured to pass between. At the last moment he saw he could not pass, and applied I his brakes. His car skidded in front of I plaintiff's car, dashed into it, and knocked it into the wall. Norman Wm. Nash, managing director, said that defendant came to his office on the evening of the accident and attributed the accident to the skidding of his car. Defendant said that it was impossible to have pulled up before coming to the horse and cart, and he kept to the left as much as possible. Mr. A. T. James (instructed by Mr. Evan David), for the defence, submitted that both drivers thought they could pass the cart, and the collision took place. The Judge held that the accident was due to the negligent driving of the defendant. Judgment for plaintiffs for L50 damagea would be entered.
