[Hackney Coach Accident]

Thursday afternoon, as two of the daughters of Mr. De Lisle, were passing over Regent street, Oxford street, a hackney coach, without a driver, came at a rapid pace, and knocked both the ladies down, and much injured a gentleman who accompanied them. One of the young ladies was so seriously injured that she was taken on a shutter to her father's residence, York place, Portman square, by four of the C division of the Police force. So serious were the injuries she received, that little hopes are entertained of her recovery. The policeman 132, division C, in endeavouring to stop the horses, had two of his ribs broken. The other lady was much injured, but not so seriously; and the gentleman received a contusion in the face.
