THE FLINTSHIRE TRAP I ACCIDENT. SINGULAR EVIDENCE. I On Tuesday the Flintshire Coroner (Mr. R. Bromley) held an inquest at the Police Station, Connah's Quay, as to the death of James Lamb, 37 years of age, whose death is reported else- where. From the evidence given it appears that on the previous Friday Lamb and a man named Thomas Jones went to Holywell to fetch home a trap which he had bought. They drove as far as Bagillt, where they stopped to light the lamps. While Lamb was getting out of the trap the horse suddenly bolted, and, coming into contact with the steps of the Royal Oak Inn, the trap was overturned and one of the wheels passed over the lower part of Lamb's body.—Thomas Jones, in reply to questions by the Coroner, said Lamb remained on the steps of the Royal Oak half an hour before he was taken into the house.—Samuel Jones, an eye-witness of the accident, said Dr. Keys, a local medical practitioner, came to Lamb in ten minutes, and then went away for the police. The doctor returned in a quarter of an hour. There was no suggestion to take Lamb inside the house, though the weather was cold and sleet was falling.—Thomas Griffiths, who was on the spot directly after the accident, said Dr. Keys arrived ten minutes afterwards, asked for a policeman, and then went to look for one.—The Coroner: Did it not strike you as an extra- ordinary thing for the doctor to go to look for a policeman?—Yes it did. The witness, continuing, said when the doctor came back he said the police- man was in Holywell. Lamb was taken into the house, and when the doctor had bandaged him he said he wanted to go home. The witness went to Connah s Quay with Lamb in a trap. Lamb was put in the trap in a sitting posture, but when near Flint he was put to lie down, as he could not sit up any longer. The doctor did not say any- thing as to how he was to be treated on the way. Lamb died before they got to Connah's Quay.- The Coroner decided to adjourn the inquest to give Dr. Keys an opportunity to be present and give evidence.
