CORONER’S INQUEST

This Department Lewis John Balfour L.W on his oath saith, I am a medical practitioner residing at Burwood Road Hawthorn

I knew the deceased. I first saw her after the accident about ten minutes after the pm. That wason 1st Saturday shewas then at her ownhouse on Auburn Road. At that time she was in a state of shock butnot much but in a great amount of pain She was perfectly conscious. I said to her “How did theaccident happen? She said “I was riding down Burwood Road and in trying to avoid a coveredvan, I stupidly took thewrong side of the road andthen theaccident occurred” I cannot rememberwhether she said that she was knocked down or whether she was run into I saw her again at 6pm on the same day. I did not think operative treatment desirable at 1 o’clock I did not think that the injuries were so serious that they required operation and she did not give any indication that way. Her cousin Dr Clara Stone had been sent and at 6pm her condition was, about the same but the shock was a little less. Dr Stone cameto my house and consulted me and then she went round again and I did not see the deceased till 6am the following morning She was then moribund and she died a few minutes after. I saw thepostmortem examination, that did not enlighten me any more except the injuries. There wasconsiderable bruising about the second rib anterfally and all down the right side. They appeared t be the result of wheel marks Themarks were to extensive to be due to a mere blow orhaving been knocked off. It appeared to me that a wheel had struck her and then glanced off afterpartially running her over.

The cause of death was a haemoerrhage. I think theinjury was cause by a blow over the right side extending fromthefourth rib down to thepelvis. Injuries by a wheel would be compatible with the injuries. The most serious mark wason theilium.

Cause of Death Haemoerrhage Rupture of the bowel

CONONER’S INQUEST No.53

This Deponent* Grace Clara Stone on h oath saith, I am a Medical practitioner residing at 68 Alma road St Kilda


The deceased Mary Page Stone was my cousin I was with her at theHospital previous to the accident. I also saw her on the Thursday previous to the accident. That would be the 15th inst. I did not speak to her that day. She was walking along the street. I sawher at her residence after theaccident I didnot examine her much I found that she has a haemorrhagein the kidneys so I didnot examine her much. She was conscious. I did not ask her how the accident occurred and she did not volunteer any statement. She had bruising all down theright side and two abrasions on the lower parts of the ribs and one over thelower partof theabdomen on theright side. I do not think that these marks could have been caused by her falling from a bicycle and they looked as though a wheel of a heavy vehicle had gone on to her and then off. I should not have thought that any of theinjuries could havebeen caused by coming in contact with the point of a shaft andI think that all themarks were caused by coming in contact with a wheel She was aged 45 years and single. I saw her after death on the 18th inst To theCoroner: She used a ride a bicycle and was a good rider.

CORONER’S INQUEST

This Depondent* John Hughes on h saith, I am a Builder residing at 146 Glass Street Essendon

I remember the 17th inst I was going up Burwood Road Hawthorn a little before 11am. I was driving alight jinker with one horse and was alone. I was behind a dray and just pulled out. There was stone in the dray .It was nearly opposite the Town Hall I was going Easterly on the North side and the dray was going the same way. As I pulled out to pass the dray and the shaft had comein line with the horse I saw a lady coming shewas riding a bicycle. She was going Westerly in theopposite direction to me I calledout to her. There was a van a little ahead and that was going the same direction as me When I called out she seemed to waver andI pulled themare up and she ran into themare and then fell on the right side under the stone dray. I was driving slow and was almost at a standstill When she struck The dray was going at walking pace on itsproper side and close to the channel. I could not say that thedeceased struck any part of my cart I could not say of theshaft struckher I did not fell anything. If the near side shaft struck herit would be about the chest. The dray pulled up amost at thesame time as I did. The covered-in vehicle was ahead of me I do not know how far ahead it was it wason itsproper side . If I had passed the dray I would have passed it on the off side if he had crossedover and if he had crossed over I would have waited. There wasplenty of room for the deceased to pass between me and the dray or on herright side of me. She had passed the covered-in van then but on its wrong side. The van may have been from 15 to 40 yards from me and if he kept on the same side ashe was going I would have passed him on the Town Hall side. He was going at a walking pace There wasplenty of room for thedeceased to have passed the o covered-in vehicle on her proper side.

Taken and sworn before me the 31st day of Signature of J Hughes December 1910 at Melbourne Signature of Coroner Coroner
