1880. James W Tuckwell

Motor Car Smash
TWO MEN AND A BOY BADLY INJURED  TWO OTHERS ESCAPE
As a result of their motor car turning over twice on Saturday evening at about 12.45, three members of the Tuckwell family, of Breakfast Creek, are at present inmates of the Cowra District Hospital, suffering from very serious injuries.  It appears that Mr. George Tuckwell left Cowra for Breakfast Creek in his Chevrolet car at about 12.30 on Saturday accompanied by his father, uncle and two brothers, one of the latter occupying the front seat beside him.   When in the vicinity of the Erambie Mission the car got out of control and turned two complete somersaults, eventually landing on its wheels again. Mr. Brien, of Reid's Flat road, who was on his way home in his car, was first on the scene, and seeing that some members of the party were badly injured, sent for help, then setting to to render what aid he could. A little later Constable Auld and a few other willing workers came along. It was then found that Mr. Tuckwell Snr., and his brother, James Tuckwell, were in a rather way, also the youngest member of the party, while the two occupants of the front seat escaped almost unscathed.  The injured were then removed to the Hospital, where they were admitted by Dr. Adams, the two older men suffering from broken collar bones and serious injuries to the head, James having slight concussion.  Young Tuckwell was taken the Imperial Hotel, Cowra, after treatment, but was admitted to the Hospital next day.
