"In this case the 9.15 11.m. express train from Preston to Liverpool ran into a light engine standing on the down main line near the points of the cross-over road at the south end of the station, causing the engine and five leading coaches of the express to be derailed.
The first and second coaches fouled the up main line, and just afterwards the 9.30 pm. rail motor car from Maghull to Ormskirk approached on the up line and collided with the leading coach of the express. One passenger in the express was killed and three were injured, as were also the driver and fireman of the express and the driver of the light engine. "
