Driver’s lucky escape from overturned lorry
An accident which occurred on the corner at the bottom of Watch Oak Hill, Blackham on Thursday resulted in an almost miraculous escape for the driver. He was Robert William Rogers of Hackney, who was driving an unloaded lorry belonging to Messrs A and E Bristow of Hackney, towards Tunbridge Wells. The cause of the accident is unknown and no one saw it happen but the lorry, as seen in this exclusive “Courier” photograph, overturned on a bank and was completely wrecked. The driver was taken to the Kent and Sussex Hospital suffering from minor cuts and bruises and was subsequently discharged. Kent and Sussex Courier 26 November 1943
