When he started he wasstanding on the footboard of the shafts. William Henry Nicholls said- was on the main road about 9.30pm. Saw deceased on his wagon. Heseemed to be trotting very fast. Heard him calling to his horses,trying to stop them. After he passed Mr Brooks gate the horses gotinto a gallop. Deceased was standing in the centre of the shafts, andseemed to have full command. He was holding both reins and pullinghard. There was another wagon in front, and in trying to avoid orpass it the deceased's wagon went on, then up the embankment and againon the road. Do not think deceased's horses sheid. Saw no one passfor half an hour before. Saw deceased afterwards lying on the ground- not moving, but seemed to be breathing very heavily. Went to lifthim and found his head split open; in fact a portion of his brainscame on my hands. Got assistance and removed the body to where it isnow lying. By a Juryman - The horses had bolted. Saw no cause forthe bolt. The skid was not on By another Juryman - It was about fourminutes after the wagon passed that I saw the body. Deceased fell onthe off side of his wagon.
