George Holmes, 49, of 59 Melrose Avenue South, Hamilton, was instantly killed, and his wife, Violet, and 14 year old son, George, were rushed to West Lincoln Memorial Hospital with serious injuries following an accident Sunday night, west of Grimsby.

Driving west on the Queen Elizabeth Way at Roberts Road, the Holmes car, a 1950 model Hillman, was believed by police to have been struck by another vehicle attempting to pass the Holmes' car. The English-type car went out of control, rolling over several times across the boulevard and coming to rest near the eastbound lane. A truck owned by the Northland Construction Company, Toronto, travelling east was damaged slightly when the driver took to the boulevard to avoid collision with the Holmes' car which was completely demolished.

Preliminary examination by Dr. A.F.McIntyre of Mrs. Holmes and her son showed that he suffered from severe head injuries and possible rib injury, while the widow sustained shoulder injuries, lacerations to the right leg and severe brush burns.

Pending investigation by the OPP, Constable Ted Swain said the name of the driver of the other car was being withheld.
