STRUCK BY CART SHAFT. I CART AND LORRY COLLIDE AT NEATH. I An in-quest was held at Swansea on a ed 29, of Wednesday on Thomas Morgan, aged 29, of 56, Cecil-)?treet. Neath, who died at the Swansea Hospital on Tuesday from injuries sustained in a street accident at Ncath. Dr. Wood (Swansea Hospital) said de- ceased was semi-conscious when admitted on I the 1st January with injuries to the body. After an operation deceased died within five minutes from internal hemorrhage. Benjamin Morgan, Westboume road, Neath, manager of the Melincrythan Co- operative Stores, an eye-witness of the acci dent, which occurred a/bout 1.25 p.m. on January 1st, said he saw a motor-lorry be- longing to Mr Glover coming m the direction of Neartjh, and alsp saw a green-grocer's cart [ coming ailong behind. The car kept a straight j [ course, and the driver of the cart, thijik-ing he would not have enough room to pasa on his right side, since there was a bend in the road a little way on, swerved to the wrong side of the road and both collided. The left hand wheel of the cart was knocked off and the driver, still clinging to the reins, was pitched out. Witness thought the speed of the car was indiscreet (he nad estimated it at 20 miles an hour) on a-ccount of the state of the road, though not excessive. James Lappam, 16, Cattle-street, Neath, the driver of the cart, accounted for the fact of his being on his wrong side through his effort to avoid a collision. Philip Jenkins, 21, Ethel-street, Neath, driver of the lorry, also gave his version of the affair, and in answer to Chief Con- stable Higgins said he did not pull up be- cause he could not although he had twenty yards in which to do it. and his speed was not more than ten miles an hour. The Coroner said the evidence wa6 very confusing- It had come out that the de. oeased, who was in the lorry, was struck by the shaft. There was no evidence of man- slaughter, but evidence agreed on the point that the motor driver was not as much on his proper side as he might have been, but the evidence was very conflicting. The jury brought in a verdict of "Death from injuries accidentally received." •
