Mid Sussex Times - Tuesday 18 April 1882

Tricycle Accident.

Leonard Gibb, a lad, met with an accident on Wednesday afternoon.

It seems Master Sergison was riding a tricycle towards the Park, and when near the King’s Head Hotel invited Gibb to get behind, which he foolishly did, but going down Place-walk by some means fell off, breaking his wrist.

Mr. G. Baker, assistant to Dr. Byass, set the broken limb, but no doubt it will be some time before he can use his wrist again.
