Description: William Huskisson (1770 – 1830) was a British statesman, financier, and Member of Parliament for several constituencies, including Liverpool. He is best known today, however, as the world’s first widely reported railway casualty as he was run over and fatally wounded by George Stephenson’s pioneering locomotive engine Rocket.
