DRIVING FATALITY

MAIL COACH OVERTURNS.

WAGGA, Tuesday.

One of the best known mail coach contractors in this part of the State, Mr. Charles Hurst, was killed today. He left Wagga this morning with a load of mail and a passenger, Mr. Doherty, who had an arrived from Sydney, and was proceeding to Wantabadgery Station on a holiday visit.

When the coach was about 16 miles from Wagga one of the wheels ran into a deep rut. The vehicle turned right over, pinning the two men underneath.

Mr. Doherty, after great difficulty, freed himself, and crawled from underneath. He tried to move the heavy load off Hurst, but failed to do so, and then walked to a farm for help.

When assistance arrived the vehicle and horse were moved, and Hurst's body was recovered. His neck had been broken, and death had apparently been instantaneous. Hurst had been driving the same mail for over 20 years, and was highly respected by the settlers
