You Couldn't Make It Up!

by Jack Little

While travelling through to Easter Road for a match against Hibs on 26/11/1955, Thistle supporters were involved in an accident when a car collided with a stationary lorry and rebounded into their bus near Newhouse. 30 Thistle supporters rendered first aid to 5 injured men who had been in the car until help arrived. One subsequently died in hospital. ("Airdrie and Coatbridge Advertiser" 3/12/1955.)
