Auto Fatality from The Oneida Dispatch, May 27, 1910

ANOTHER AUTOMOBILE FATALITY
 

One Man Killed and Three Injured Near Sherrill Tuesday Night

A distressing automobile accident in which Joseph N. Knapp, a prominent traveling shoe salesman of Auburn, was instantly killed, and James G. S. Dey, Thomas E. Clay and the chauffeur, Elliott Brown, colored, all of Syracuse, were painfully injured, occurred at a out 5:30 Tuesday evening on the Seneca turnpike near Morrison's crossing, between Sherrill and Vernon.  The accident was due to the collapse of the right forward wheel of Mr. Dey's 60 horse power Franklin touring car, No. 5711.

The party was returning from a shoot of the Rome Gun club.  Mr. Knapp and Mr. Clay were in the rear seat while Mr. Dey and his chauffeur were in the front, Brown being at the wheel.  They had made a detour around Vernon and were again on the turnpike, running upwards of 20 miles an hour.  It is claimed that some one noticed that one of the front wheels wobbled and the car slowed down, but not quickly enough.  The four occupants were hurled out on to the ground.  Mr. Knapp striking on his head on the roadside and breaking his neck, dying almost instantly.  Mr. Clay was the first to gain his feet. He found Mr. Dey in the road badly dazed and Brown, the chauffeur in the ditch writhing with pain.

A companion car occupied by C.L. Faatz of Seneca Falls and Charles Dailey of Baldwinsville, and which was preceding them, soon turned back and brought Mr. Dey to the Broad Street Hospital in this city where an examination by Dr. Carpenter showed that he had sustained one broken rib, sprained muscles of the back and abrasions on the forehead, right cheek and temple.

Campbell's ambulance was sent to the wreck and brought Clay and Brown to the Broad Street Hospital and the body of Knapp by direction of Coroner Lewis to the morgue.  Clay received lacerations of the scalp and was able to go to his home Wednesday forenoon with his wife, who arrived here about midnight.  Brown sustained a broken right shoulder, abrasions of the arm and hands and injured kidneys and ligaments of the back.  He will be confined to his bed for some time, but will recover.  Mr. Knapp's brother, Charles Knapp of Auburn, arrived here at midnight and at 11:23 Wednesday took the body to Auburn.  Knapp leaves a wife, two sons and a daughter.

Mrs. Dey was advised of the accident and arrived in Oneida about 8 o'clock.  She has remained with her husband at the hospital since.  On Wednesday Donald Dey's son, nephew of the injured man was also here.  Mr. Dey is a member of the firm of Dey Brothers & Co. of Syracuse.  He is badly injured, but it is believed that he will recover, although he will have to remain here in the hospital for a week or more.

At the hospital yesterday afternoon Mr. Dey and Mr. Brown were reported doing well, with no change in their condition.

The cause of the accident seems to be a mystery.  While it is attributed to the collapse of the right front wheel, every spoke of which was broken, there is a suspicion that the tire burst, which caused the machine to swerve and hurl the occupants out.
