Accident at Navan

The Times (The London Times) 21st Nov.1837:

On Saturday last the Cavan coach, coming from Dublin was upset within a half-a mile of Navan, in consequence of one of the fore-wheels suddenly coming off. The coach-man James Bolis, who is an excellent driver, showed great pressure of mind on the occasion, for the moment he perceived the irregular motion of the wheel he pulled up the horses, and called aloud to the passengers (two inside and ten outside) to hold fast; immediately after the vehicle overset. Several of the passengers received severe bruises; but none, we are given to say, are of a serious nature. The coach proprietors are not, it appears, altogether blameless, as the wheels were old and in bad order for a considerable time.
