[Welland Telegraph, 10 October 1911]

Mr. and Mrs. Munzio Paolone and their two children of Erie Street, Humberstone, all suffered injury when the wheel of their automobile became locked west of Coyle, Sunday evening. Mrs. Paolone’s injuries necessitated her removal to the Welland County Hospital. She was suffering from cuts.

Paolone reported the accident to Chief of Police Jones of Crowland and said the wheel of the car locked as he was attempting to drive around a curve on the River Road. The car ran into a tree.

Whitmore Noxel of Humberstone Township escaped possible serious injury Saturday night when the Ford touring car he was driving turned turtle on the detour road at Dain City. It is said the car upset owing to the rough condition of the road. Mr. Noxel was not hurt, managing to crawl from the auto after it had overturned.
