A sequel to the accident in Whit-week at Milton Ernest, in which a charabanc belonging to Mr Frederick Clarke, Higham-road, Rushden, was involved with a doctor’s car, occurred at Sharnbrook Petty Sessions on Friday last. Dr Norman H Bolton, of Hampstead, was charged with driving a motor-car in a manner dangerous to the public at Milton Ernest on June 11th.
Mr Frederick Clarke, in evidence said that the doctor’s car, in trying to pass, struck the front wheel of the charabanc, mounted the grass at the side of the road and landed in a ditch. Two passengers were injured.
Arthur Carr, of 56, High-street, Rushden (a cyclist who witnessed the accident), Fred Twelvetree (carpenter, Higham Ferrers), and P.C. Robinson, of Milton, also gave evidence.
Accused was fined £5 and ordered to pay witnesses’ costs.
