Herbert Graham, 25, of 193 Belmont avenue, Hamilton, was fatally injured in an accident on the Queen Elizabeth Way, two miles west of Grimsby Sunday night, and was removed to Hamilton General Hospital suffering from a fractured skull and numerous other injuries. He died early Monday morning. The injured man, police were informed, was in the act of jacking up his car to replace the left rear tire which had gone flat when he was struck by another vehicle going in the same direction and operated by Thomas Wynne, 481 Church Street, Toronto. George Graham, 106 Avondale avenue, father of the deceased man, was at the rear of the stalled car holding a flashlight for his son. He narrowly escaped injury, jumping back just in time to avoid being struck. The oncoming Toronto car, police were told, swerved in an effort to miss the Graham car, but struck the left rear fender, crushing the man between the two vehicles. Mr. Graham was accompanied on the trip by his wife and by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Graham, and a married sister, Mrs. Marjorie Edwards, also of 106 Avondale avenue. Provincial constable E.L. Priest, of Grimsby, in in charge of the investigation.
