"Shortly after starting from Doncaster (Central) Station, the 8.0 p.m. special excursion train, Leicester to Leeds, when approaching Frenchgate signal box came into sidelong collision with the rear part of the 8.45 p.m. goods train from Doncaster (Decoy Yard) to York, which was passing over the junction between the down South Yorkshire goods line and the down main line. The driver and fireman of the excursion train, and the guard of the goods train, together with one passenger in the former train, were injured or suffered from shock; only one of these, the excursion train driver, was detained in hospital."
