    • Fatally Injured In Auto Accident

      John E. Buckel, Former Now Hamburg Resident, Died In Toronto Hospital

      The death took place in St. Joseph's Hospital, Toronto, early on Tuesday morning of John E. Buckel who was seriously injured in a head on auto collision on the provincial highway near Oakville on Saturday evening. Mr. Buckel was returning from Port Credit to his home in Brantford, having as passengers his 13 year old son, John, and C. A. Chittenden, of Kainsville, and J. A. Bernadine, of Brantford, who were all injured but are reported to be out of danger. Mr. Buckel suffered severe head injuries, a broken arm and knee cap and succumbed to his injuries.

      The driver of the other car, Wm. Foreman, aged 24, of Detroit who figured in the smash up was instantly killed and another passenger in his car was also injured.

      The accident occurred about four miles east of Oakville and according to reports the Foreman car got half way into the ditch and in trying to get back onto the pavement Foreman lost control and smashed into the Buckle car. An inquest into the accident will be held on Friday.

      The late John Buckel was a son of the late Joseph Buckel and was born on a farm in East Zorra. Following the death of his father the family moved to New Hamburg and resided here for many years. Here he was employed for many years in the New Hamburg Manufacturing Co. plant and about twenty years ago moved to Brantford. He was 43 years of age and a devout member of the Catholic Church. He leaves his sorrowing window and two sons to mourn his tragic death. He also leaves two brothers, Arthur and Joseph Buckel, of Kitchener, and one sister, Mrs. James Sutton, of Alma.

      The funeral win be held at Brantford on Friday forenoon
