Hurled from the running board of a car as it rounded the curve at the bottom of Hamilton hill in Dundas on Saturday morning, Kenneth Wright of Blackheath was killed instantly when his head struck an iron standard. The tragedy occurred when Wright was being driven back from a dance in Dundas.

He mounted on the running board of a car full of young people driven by Cyril Massi of Hamilton. As the vehicle reached the foot of the hill where there is a sharp left hand turn, Wright lost his grip and was catapulted through the air, striking the iron post by the roadside with terrific force.

Life was extinct when the doctor arrived.
