"CARDIGAN.—CART ACCIDENT.—An accident occurred an Saturday last, at a short distance on Cardigan Common Road, to a poor woman named Lucy Jones, residing near the Black Horse, Blaenporth, who was returning home from market in the eveneng, when a horse and cart came along at a sharp space, the driver sitting in the cart, and before the poor woman ,could get out of the way the horse knocked her down, and a wheel of the cart passed over her right arm, the driver of the cart immediately he saw the accident, urged the horse faster, and by that means entirely escaped, without his name being known there being but few people near at the time. The poor woman was speedily picked up, and attended to, and on examination it was found that, although lacerated and bruised, the bone was not broken." Pembs Herald 26 Jan 1855
