 ANOTHER MAIN ROAD TRAGEDY. MOTOR-CYCLIST KILLED. A TIRE COMES OFF THE WHEEL. LAUNCESTON, February 16. A fatal motor-cycle accident occurred this morning on the Hobart-road near Symmons Plains. Cyril J. Reid, who for some years past has been the Stanley manager of Messrs. Cumming Bros., Burnie, was proceeding on a motor-cycle to see his wife, who is ill at Bagdad, when his front wheel tire blew out, and he was thrown off the machine, and fatally injured. The inquest on the body was held at the Perth Hotel this evening, before the Coroner (Hon. J. W. Cheek, M.L.C.). Inspector Dwan, of Longford, represented the police. Robert Peachie, carter, of Perth, gave evidence that he was near Poor Man's Corner, on the Hobart-road, about 9 o'clock this morning, when he saw a man on a motor-cycle about 150 yards away, and travelling at an ordinary speed. He saw the man fall off the cycle. When witness got up to him he was lying on his side, with the machine on his leg. It appeared to witness that the tire on the front wheel had blown out. He remained with the man for about an hour, until assistance arrived. A motor-car came along, and deceased was put into it, and taken to Perth. There was nothing on the road to cause the accident, but the wheel appeared to have skidded about a yard in the sand before the fall. Lance Hudson, dentist, residing at Longford, stated that he was proceeding along the Hobart-road on his way to Campbell Town, between 10 and 11 a.m., and when near Poor Man's Corner saw a motor-cycle lying in the middle of the road, with the tire off one wheel. The witness Peachey was supporting the deceased, who was unconscious, and bleeding at the nose and also breathing heavily. It appeared to witness that the cyclist had run into some sand, and, in trying to get out of it, had pulled the tire off. The deceased was taken to Mr. Lowe's, and a Mr. Taylor went to Evandale for a doctor. Witness stayed with the deceased, but the latter did not regain consciousness, and ceased to breathe 20 minutes after the doctor arrived. In witness's opinion, the tire coming off in the heavy sand was the cause of the fall. There was no sign of a collision. Mr. Peachey's car was on the side of the road, and witness met no one on the road. The deceased man was the Stanley correspondent of "The Mercury," and was very popular in that town. He leaves a widow and five young children. STANLEY, February 16. " Word was received at Stanley yesterday afternoon of the death of Mr. Cyril J.- Reid while proceeding on a motor bicycle to Bagdad to see his wife, who was unwell.
