into a dock on Barrow Street, a block away from the Christopher Street slip it was looking for. Five people were "injured gravely, and at fewest fifty more suffered broken bones or contusions. Most of those badly injured were thrown under the feet of horses that reared and plunged in the driveway. Others were trampled by fellow passengers, who became hysterical and fought to save themselves."
