      INQUEST INTO
      FARMER'S DEATH
      AFTER CAR ACCIDENT
      Constable Thinks He Pressed Accelerator in Mistake for
      Brake
      KINGAROY. Mav 16.
      An Inquest Into the death of Carl Frederick Schwenke, farmer, of Manmiem, near Kingaroy, who was found
      unconscious on the side of Mannuem Road a few yards from an upturned motor utility truck on Easter Monday evening, was held before the Coroner (Mr. F. G. Illidge) at Kingaroy this
      afternoon.
      Dr. Saxton gave evidence that Schwenke was brought to his surgery by ambulance about 7.30 p.m. on April 18. He was unconscious and so obviously badly injured that witness sent
      him direct to to the District Hospital. He had a fractured skull, and broken ribs among other internal injures. He died
      on April 24 without regaining consciousness.

      "HEARD NOISE LIKE SKIDDING."
      Mrs. Augusta Emily Klein, whose residence on Mannuem Road and milking shed were about 25 chains from the scene of the accident, said she was at the cow bails when she heard a noise like a car skidding and saw a cloud of dust. She and her husband went down, and reported the discovery of an upturned car and a man lying about two yards away, to the Kumbia police and kingaroy ambulance.

      William Schwenke, son of the deceased, said that his father, aged 78 years, left his place in Kingaroy alone about 4.30 p.m. for Mcnnuem.

      Constable Lange. of the Kumbia police, said that from an examination of the marks of the car on the road, the
      vehicle accelerated after leaving the road. He was of the opinion that he pressed the accelerator in mistake for
      the brake.

      The inquest was closed.
