Carriage Accident

Falkirk Herald 22nd May 1909
Last week an accident which might have attended with fatal result occurred at the Spur Inn corner, when a motor car ran into a machine owned Mr George Watkins, who is a carriage hirer in the place. Mr Watkins had passengers for the 12.30 train to Glasgow, and while passing the Spur, and making for Carlisle Road, the motor ran into him, striking the horse and knocking it down and breaking the shafts of the machine. Beyond a fright, none of the passengers was hurt.
