"A London and North Eastern light engine, travelling at about 8 miles an hour, collided with a London, Midland and Scottish passenger coach conveying a theatrical company from Rhyl to Scarborough, which was standing on the up engine line on the west side of the station. One passenger was seriously injured through being thrown violently against a doorway in the corridor. Two of the station staff, trained in ambulance work, were in attendance within two or three minutes, and this passenger was dispatched to hospital in the police ambulance about 15 minutes after the accident occurred. Four other passengers, who received cuts and bruises, were attended to on the spot by a doctor who was summoned, and were able to continue their journey."
