Sutton In The News - 150 Years Ago This Week:
'SHOCKING RAILWAY ACCIDENT NEAR ST. HELENS.'
Late on Monday night, a woman named Mary Litherland, aged 46 years, residing at St. Helens, was fatally injured, and her little daughter, aged three years, who accompanied her, met with a very serous accident, at the St. Helens Junction station. They had been to Crewe to visit a relative residing there, and having changed carriages, were seated in the train for St. Helens, when the engine coming up jolted against the front of the train, and caused it to run some little distance in an opposite direction. The deceased, exclaiming "Oh! I am in the wrong train," jumped out with the child in her arms, and, slipping, got under the wheels, one of which passed over her left arm and leg, and also inflicted severe injuries about the head. The child was likewise dreadfully hurt. The woman’s leg and arm and the child's arm were amputated by Drs. Twyford and Gaskill, assisted by other medical gentlemen. The woman died at three o'clock on Tuesday morning.
