Under the headline, The Motor Problem – Two Accidents, the Daily Mail reported:
“A motor-car belonging to Mr. Prentice, of Kensington House, Newmarket, was being steered around a sharp corner on the road between Newmarket and Ely yesterday, when it skidded and was completely overturned. The occupants, who consisted of three ladies, two children, and the driver, were thrown out on to the road. One lady had her head injured; and another was badly bruised. The third lady had the heel of one of her shoes driven into the ground and that of the other wrenched off by the force of the impact. The children and driver escaped miraculously. The car was wrecked. A motor-car dashed into a hansom cab in South Audley-street, Piccadilly, yesterday afternoon, and the cab was overturned. An elderly lady and a little girl were thrown on to the pavement, and were so injured that they had to be taken to hospital. The driver was unhurt.”
