Run Down by Motor-Lorry.

A motor-lorry laden with five tons of flour ran into a queue of people who were entering a tramway-car at Marsden, near Huddersfield, last evening, killing Flora Beaumont, 50, a woollen weaver of Slaithwaite. Her skull was fractured.

James Hulley, a weaver of Marsden, had two ribs broken and his legs and arms were injured. He was taken to Huddersfield Infirmary.

Several others received minor hurts.

Drizzling rain was falling at the time.
