Accident at Elm Grove

ACCIDENT IN ELM GROVE. — An accident, which might have led to serious consequences, occurred this afternoon in Elm-grove. As Mr. Robinson, of Victoria-road, was riding in front of the Bush Hotel his stirrup leather snapped, and he was thrown to the ground, the animal rearing at the same time and falling partially upon him. He was conveyed into the house of Dr. Conan Doyle, of Bush Villas, and that gentleman was enabled to pronounce that, though considerably shaken and bruised, there was no injury of any consequence.
