Photographs of a automobile accident on Iona Road near Dutton, which claimed the lives of Ralph Welch and Billie Rick. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal: "Big Truck in Death Plunge on Dunwich Road: Fragment of Burnt Cotton Jersey Serves to Identify Boy Victim as Billy Rick." 2_3133: "The bog five-ton coal delivery truck that carried Ralph Welch, driver, and his little companion, to their deaths, on the Iona Road, about a mile east of Dutton, about 12:30 o'clock, Thursday noon, overturned and literally flattened out in the northeast corner of a field on Russell Miller's farm, after striking the soft soil of the shoulder on the north side of the road, at the bottom of a little grade, to swerve sharply across the road and crash through a wire fence. The front of the truck body apparently grazed the trunk of the small tree against which a boy may be seen leaning, evidently causing the truck to completely overturn, all four wheels in the air. The driver is believed to have got into difficulties as he reached the brow of the grade as the rear part of the box was found on the embankment at the south side of the road." 2_3134: "A picture of the truck immediately after it was righted by a wrecking truck from Wallacetown. Only the cab and the front part of the truck were burned by the flaming gasoline pouring from the tanks under the truck. The two bodies, horribly burned, were in the seat of the cab. Looking into the cab is Provincial Constable Harold MacDonald, of St. Thomas, who investigated the terrible accident; while Coroner Dr. M. B. Graham, of Dutton, is seen to the extreme left in the forefront. Dr. Graham was one of the first to reach the scene. No person actually witnessed the accident." 2_3136: "Billie Rick."

Photographs of a three vehicle collision on No. 3 Highway near Morpeth. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal on June 16, 1950, page three: “Two Car and Transport Involved in Crash.” 2_3927: “Gerald Garton, Woodstock, Ont., has a miraculous escape from death and injury, in the above accident on King’s Highway No. 3 at the east entrance to Morpeth, about 3:30 o’clock on Thursday afternoon when both side of his new car were ripped off and the rear crushed in as a result of an accident involving a large transport truck and a motor car driven by Charles Keljikien, of Chelsea Mass. The truck and the Massuchetts car were proceeding west while Garton was eastbound. As a dip in the highway at the east entrance to Morpeth was approaching, Keljikien pulled out of line to pass the truck, then seeing Garton approaching up over the hill, tried to pull back into lie but unable to do so took to the south shoulder to avoid a collision. Keljikien is said to have lost control of his car, which swerved back on to the pavement ,striking the front wheel of Garton’s car and knocking his car directly in the path of the big truck. Garton stepped out his wrecked car, which remained on the pavement, without a scratch. The Keljikien car landed in the ditch on the south side of the highway the truck on the north side of the highway. Keljikien’s mother suffered a fracture of her right ankle, but other passengers in the car escaped without injury. Times-Journal representatives returning to St. Thomas from Ridgetown, reached the scene a few minutes after the accident, some time before the police arrived. The accident was investigated by Provincial Constable H. Mason of the Kent detachment.”

Photograph of a wrecked car, with the front crunched in, and laying next to a railway crossing. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal, October 17, 1951, page one: “Fortunately There Was Nobody in It.” 1_3068: “The crumpled wreckage of a 1950 Plymouth automobile owned by Donald Wolfe, Springfield, lay all day Tuesday near the N.Y.C. crossing in the southeast outskirts of the village beside the right-of-way after being hit the night before by a Chesapeake & Ohio westbound freight. Mrs. Wolfe, driving the car with three women passengers, misjudged her position on the road at the crossing in a dense fog and the car became wedged between the tracks. She and the other women were trying to get the car extricated when the wigwag signals at the crossing began operating. There was nothing for them to do but stand clear and let the oncoming freight demolish the vehicle. It was cast aside 150 feet or so west of the crossing where other similar accidents have occurred.”

Photographs of an automobile accident in Straffordville, showing a car in a ditch and the damage to the vehicle. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal, September 15, 1951, page one: “Car in Crash, Rolls 75 Feet Down Embankment.” 1_2804: “Robert H. Nunn, R.R. 1, Aylmer, had a miraculous escape from death or serious injury Thursday night when his car was sideclipped by another car on the county road about a mile west of Straffordville, went out of control, clipped off a string of guard rails and then rolled over and over to the bottom of a 75 foot embankment, landing upsidedown among the underbrush. Nunn crawled out of his car with only a scratch on one hand. The car reported to have clipped the Nunn car was owned by Art Leonard of Bluewater, Ont., and driven by Robert Cote of Hamilton, tobacco worker. It took a powerful wrecking truck with windlass equipment and a force of men to get Nunn’s car up the embankment and on the highway again, late Friday morning. Cote, in police court Friday was fined $10 and costs and ordered to refrain from driving for sixty days.”

Photographs of a train collision with a truck, and debris scattered around the train tracks. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal, December 3, 1951, page nine: “Virtually Nothing Left of Truck in Which Otterville Children Killed: Tillsonburg Tragedy Was End of Trip to See St. Nick.” 1_3450, 1_3449, 1_3453, 1_3454, and 1_3447: “These are scenes of the tragedy at the Tilson avenue crossing of the New York Central in Tillsonburg Saturday afternoon in which three Otterville children, William Campbell, 12; Olive Campbell, 11, and Carol Campbell, 10, met instant death. The remains of their father’s two-ton truck, completely demolished when it was hit by a fast westbound express, appear strewn along the north side of the track for 400 yards west of the crossing. The upper left photo is a view taken from a point about 100 yards west of the crossing and looking toward the Tillsonburg depot just east of the crossing with a train standing on the westbound track waiting for a switch to be repaired. Centre left is the crushed cab of the truck, under which the mangled body of one of the little girls was found. Other parts of the truck are shown bottom left. In the upper right picture, Tony Dennis, of St. Thomas, looks at the mark left on the side of a railway shanty 150 yards west of the crossing where the wheel of the truck lying in the foreground crashed against it. The front of engine No. 5215 was photographed as it appeared on its arrival in St. Thomas with part of Campbell’s truckload of scrap wedged in the frame, including old oil and paint cans, cartons and other junk. Lower right is Arthur Chipps, R.R. 3., Delhi, employed in a planning mill close to the crossing, was one of the first on the scene. He said the crash of the train into Campbell’s truck sounded like an explosion.”

Photographs of the remains of the house of Clement V. Allen of Lynhurst, which was destroyed by fire on New Year's Day. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal: "Concrete Walls All That Are Left of Burned Home: Lynhurst Home Completely Destroyed; Loss $13,000; Couple Flee in Night Attire." "Fire Destroyed Home and Contents of Mr. and Mrs. Clement V. Allen at Lynhurst, New Year's Day: Less than five hours after Mr. and Mrs. Clement V. Allen, of Lynhurst, had toasted the New Year with a wish for happiness and prosperity, tragedy struck them a telling blow early Thursday when a disastrous fire destroyed their comparatively new home at the crest of the Lynhurst hill, together with most of its contents. The loss on the house alone was estimated by the contractor who built it at about $9,000 and on the contents another $4,000. Mr. and Mrs. Allen were forced to flee from the dwelling clad only in night attire, leaving practically every stitch of clothing they possessed as prey to the flames. They had to walk through the snow in feet that were virtually bare for a considerable distance to the home of James M. Wilson, a neighbor, where they were given warm drinks and emergency clothing and shelter. In getting out of the house, Mr. Allen suffered cuts from the glass of a broken window through which he climbed to safety. He was taken to the Memorial Hospital."
