HALKYN MECHANIC'S FATAL INJURIES
DIES HALF AN HOUR AFTER ACCIDENT
A shocking road fatality occurred at about 8.15 on Wednesday morning, involving the death of Mr Edward John Davies, Plas Onn Cottage, Nerquis near Mold.
It appears that Mr Davies was motor cycling to his work at the Haven Garage, Halkyn, where he was employed as a motor mechanic, and when near the turning near the Red Lion Inn, Rhosesmor, he collided with a motor lurry [sic]. The motor cyclist was thrown from his machine and received serious head injuries to which he succumbed half an hour afterwards. Deceased who was 32 years of age was married and is survived by a wife and three young children.
The inquest was opened last night (Wednesday) at Penyrorsedd, Rhosesmor, by the Flintshire Deputy Coroner (Mr Humphrey Llewellyn Jones), when evidence of identification was given by Joseph Sharps, of Haven Garage, Halkyn. The inquest was afterwards provisionally adjourned until Tuesday next.
