Motor Collision.—At the inter-section of Church and Bourke streets on July 8 a motor accident occurred, as a result of which three local residents were conveyed to hospital for treatment. Returning from the late Mr. G. A. Priest's funeral,
Mr. G. M'Knight, a local taxi proprietor, was driving his car along Church-street in a southerly direction while Colonel J. F. White in his car, was proceeding down Bourke street, towards Grey-street and at the Bourke-street inter-section the two cars came into violent collision.
The force of the impact swung the taxi completely round and it capsized landing with its wheels in the air. The driver and the occupants, Messrs. Walter and Chas. Kemp, Charles, Merton and Stan Priest, were hurled to the roadway, the first named being pinned beneath the vehicle. An examination disclosed that Messrs. Chas. and Walter Kemp and Mr. G. M'Knight had sustained fractured ribs, and the other four occupants of the car cuts and abrasions, while all were af- fected by shock.
