Mrs. Thomas Gamble, aged 37 and Alfred Pardoe, aged 60, of Toronto, lost their lives in an auto accident on the Fifty Mountain Road, on Sunday afternoon, and at the same time, Fred Hardiman, aged 62; Sidney Gallagher, aged 36, and Thomas Gamble, aged 37 were seriously injured. The party, of whom there were two more, Mrs. Pardoe and Charles Baker of Philadelphia who escaped with slight injuries were returning to Toronto from a trip through the fruit belt, and in coming down the long steep pitch of the Mountain, the brakes apparently gave out and the car started at a terrific pace for the "flats" which occur between the first pitch and the long one. [Detailed description of accident].
