Careless Driving – The Montreal Daily Witness Mar. 2, 1868
A carter, in attempting to pass another vehicle, in Notre Dame street, this afternoon, knocked down a poor old man, who is an inmate of the House of Refuge and a cripple. He received a severe wound on the head, which bled very profusely. He was kindly aided by W. A. Merry, Esq, and placed in the sleigh of Mr. John Fogarty, of Colborne street, who was passing, and who, with great care, conveyed the poor man to the General Hospital. Mr. Fogarty’s sleigh-robes were completely stained with blood.
