Chateaugay, Franklyn COUNTY, B. B„ FRIDAY, JUNE 6,1924.
Fatal Accident on State Road
As Car Collides With Guard

The first fatal automobile accident
of the season in this vicinity happened
at about 9 o’clock last Thursday
night on the State road near Edward
Murphy’s residence, two and a half
miles east of the village, when John
Dominic, aged 44 years, a resident of
the town of Ellenburg, met instant
death, his daughter Eva, aged 16,
received severe bruises about her
head and body and for a time it was
feared that she might be fatally injured,
Roger Lashway, of Chateau gay,
sustained fractures of two ribs
on the left side, while Theodore
Lashway, the fourth member of the
party, escaped uninjured.
| Mr. Dominic and his daughter
came to Chateau gay in the early afternoon
and met Mr. Lashway and his
son, the young couple having planned
to secure a marriage license, and as
both were under age it was necessary
to have the consent of the parents.
The party then went to the office of
Town Clerk Doge, who advised that
the license be procured in the town of
Ellenburg, the residence of the prospective,
Between 8 and 9 o’clock Mr. Lashway
got out his auto to take Mr.
Dominic and his daughter to their
home, the younger Lashway going
with them. The two elder men occupied
the front seat, with Lashway
at the wheel, while the young couple
occupied the rear seat.
As they neared the place on the
highway where the accident occurred
lights suddenly went out, and in
groping for the brakes, the car
swerved to the right, striking the
guard rail on a small bridge with
such force as to hurl Dominic, his
daughter and the driver to the
ground. The car hit the end of the
guard rail, smashed through two
posts and came ~ to a sudden stop as
the tore end plowed into the ground.
Mrs. John Murnane and Miss Helen
B. Knight, nearby residents, hearing
the crash, ran to the spot and found
the party in great confusion. Dr.
Tobin -was summoned by telephone,
and when he reached the scene he
discovered that Mr. Dominic had
been killed instantly, the guard rail
having crashed through the windshield,
striking the unfortunate man
in the chest and crushing that part of
the body in a frightful manner. Miss
Dominic was taken to the Murphy
residence, where was found that she
was bleeding profusely from the
mouth, but later it developed that
her injuries were not of a serious
nature and she was able to be taken
home the following day. Roger
Lashway was rendered unconscious
for a time, suffering from fractured
ribs and other bruises, while Theodore
Lashway was not thrown from
the car and escaped > without injury.
After caring for the injured ones,
the body of Mr. Dominic was brought
to the Town Hall and Coroner Nicholson,
of Malone, was notified and
within a short time he arrived here.
He immediately conducted an inquest
And ordered an autopsy performed by
Dr. H. D Tobin and Dr L. p Spra-
guo. this latter revealed the ter-
rible injuries which had been inflicted,
and was convincing evidence that
death resulted, instantly. The cause
of death as given out by the Coroner
was “death, resulting from multiple
perforation of lungs from automobile
accident.” The Coroner also ordered
t h a t the inquest be held open for fur
further investigation, by District Attorney
On Friday morning ‘the body was
taken to the Dominic home, three
mile*, south of Ellenburg Center.
Funeral services were held on Monday
morning at St. Edmund’s church
at Ellenburg. Corners and were largely
Mr. Dominic was well known and a
highly respected citizen of Ellenburg,
and his unfortunate and untimely
death cast a gloom over the entire
| community.
He is survived by his Widow, two
sons and seven daughter, Edward and
Albert, Mrs. Edward Carter, Mrs.
Herbert Yell, Eva, Elsie, Flora, Lulu
and Beulah, all residents of Ellenburg.
