FATAL RAILWAY ACCIDENT

Yesterday forenoon, WILLIAM REID, surfaceman, was employed working on the line a short distance from Canal Street Bridge, Saltcoats, on the Lanarkshire & Ayrshire Railway.

A goods train was approaching on the up-line on which Reid was working, and from the opposite direction a passenger train was coming on the down-line. Before Reid managed to step into the six-foot way he was caught by the engine of the goods train, and sustained a compound fracture of the leg.

He was taken to Saltcoats Station, where Dr. McClymont attended to him, and afterwards accompanied him by special train to Glasgow for treatment at the Royal Infirmary.

When Barrmill was reached the unfortunate man succumbed to his injuries.

Deceased was about 44 years of age, and leaves a wife but no family.
