Rushden Echo, Friday 26th October 1917, transcribed by Kay Collins
An Accident happened on Saturday to a lad named Payne, when taking a truck of meat for Mr R A Wheeler, butcher. Payne was pulling the truck, and another boy was pushing it, when it got out of control in going down-hill, with the result that it knocked Payne down and ran over his leg.
