TRICYCLE FALLS OVER VIADUCT
Two Men Injured
SYDNEY, January 22.
Walter Storrier (76), of Narrandera, was critically injured, and his son, John Storrier (46), a railway em- ployee, was also injured when the railway motor tricycle on which they were riding ran into a heap of stones on the lines as they were passing over a viaduct near Ganmain last evening.
Leaving the rails, the tricycle crashed over the side of the viaduct, hurling the two occupants on to rocks 14 feet below. Walter Storrier suffered a fracture of the skull and a severe lacerated wound to the forehead. John Storrier suffered bruises and shock.
