A very painful accident occurred to Mies Jones, of Belle Vue Terrace, Haverfordwest, a school teacher at Sutton, while cycling on the Broad Haven road on Wednesday evening. Two waggons belonging to Mr Thomas, haulier, Old Bridge, were proceeding along the road in the direction of Haverfordwest at the time, and Miss Jones dismounted in order to allow the waggons to pass. Subsequently she again mounted and turned in the direction of Haverford- west. This time she endeavoured to ride past the first waggon, but unfortunately her bicycle caught in a rut, and Miss Jones was thrown to the ground with the result that the back wheel went over her hand. Mrs Webb Bowen arrived on the scene shortly afterwards, and took Miss Jones home, where she was medically attended. The young woman was found to be almost in a state of collapse, but although her hand was badly smashed, no bones were fractured, and we are pleased to hear that the young lady is making satisfactory progress.
