BLOWN AGAINST A WALL.
How Somerset Motor-Cyclist Was Killed.
Yesterday Mr D. S. WATSON (Deputy Coroner for West Somerset) held an inquest on the body of Stanley BOOBYER (25), a cycle agent, of Boroughbridge, who was killed on Saturday whilst motor cycling down Wembdon Hill, near Bridgwater.
Evidence was given that a gale of wind was blowing at the time, and the deceased was seen to be descending the hill at a moderate pace when he suddenly swerved, possibly owing to the force of the wind, and crashed into a stone wall. The machine was buckled up, and deceased struck the wall head foremost, fracturing his skull, death being instantaneous.
A verdict of “Accidental death” was returned.
