Motorcycle and Bicycle Collision

Mr. Henry Lapidge, of 15, Tickhill Square, was involved in a collision with a motor cyclist on Monday about noon.

Lapidge is the assistant storekeeper at the Denaby Colliery and was returning from a business errand to Mr. E. Boot’s workshop. He was coming down Tickhill Street when John Roughsedge, of 80, Cliff View, turned out of Ravensfield Street on a motor cycle. Lapidge was knocked from his bicycle and rendered unconscious.

Dr. Ct. M. King, of Conisborough, who was passing, rendered first aid, assisted by Mr. H. Clempson. and then conveyed Lapidge home. He was suffering from concussion and his leg was grazed and cut. He is now steadily recovering.

The bicycle was badly damaged. Roughsedge,. fortunately, escaped with only a shaking.
