Walter Betteridge,42 years old, of Toronto, was struck and almost fatally injured on Monday morning by the 9:30 east bound H.G.&B. car out of Grimsby East. Mr. Betteridge is now in Hamilton Hospital suffering from a badly fractured skull and other wounds. Mrs. Betteridge, who was in the automobile with her husband, escaped with a bad scare and a shaking-up. Mrs. Betteridge had spent the night at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Loree on the John Frost farm east of the Beach road. About 9:30 in the morning, her husband drove over to the farm after her from the Beach [sic]. After getting his wife in the auto, he turned around and went down the driveway to the highway at a pretty fair rate of speed, when right up to the tracks he noticed that the street car was on top of him, and swung the motor east to avoid being struck. The trolley car hit the front end of the motor car and jammed it up against a telephone pole. Betteridge was struck at the base of the skull and was doubled up under the steering wheel. Motorman McDonald stopped his car as soon as he could and aid was given to the injured man. Dr. Elmore of Beamsville was called and he had him immediately removed to Hamilton Hospital. LATER: Betteridge died on Tuesday afternoon at 5:45 at Hamilton Hospital.
