a reckless pace

Post by 93Regina » Thu May 02, 2019 9:41 pm

On Aug. 17, 1896, 44-year-old Bridget Driscoll was crossing Dolphin
Terrace on the grounds of London’s Crystal Palace when she was struck
and killed by a car belonging to the Anglo-French Motor Carriage
Company.

The car had been traveling at 4 mph, "a reckless pace, in fact, like a
fire engine," according to one witness.

After a six-hour inquest, the jury returned a verdict of accidental
death. Coroner Percy Morrison said he hoped such a thing "would never
happen again."
