    • Death Follows Collision With Brother

      After lying nearly a week in the General Hospital, Edgar Hansen, 20, son of Mr. H. P. Hansen, a farmer of Mt. McEwen, via Wondai, died yesterday morning from injuries received in a motor cycle collision with his brother. Unusual circumstances led to the accident, which occurred on the main road near Leafdale, nine miles from Wondai, on August 27. Edgar and George Hansen, were riding their motor bicycles, unknown to each other, in opposite directions. Both riders swerved to avoid a horse, and collided. After recovering from the shock, they recognised each other for the first time. Edgar Hansen was first taken to the Wondai Hospital, his injuries including a compound fracture of the right leg. Next day he was brought to Brisbane by special aerial ambulance of Aircrafts Pty., Ltd.

      BROTHERS CYCLES COLLIDE

      Horse on Roadway

      WONDAI. Sunday.- An accident, in which two brothers were injured in unusual circumstances, was caused by a horse straying on the main road near  Leafdale yesterday. The men were George and Edgar Hansen, sons of Mr. H. P. Hansen, a Mt. McEuen farmer. Unknown to each other, they were riding their motor cycles in opposite directions near Leafdale, which is about nine miles from Wondai. Each swerved to avoid a horse on the road, and they collided head-on. It was only when they recovered from the first shock of the accident that they recognised each other. Edgar Hansen received extensive injuries to his right side, including a compound fracture of the right leg, and was taken to Brisbane by special aerial ambulance this afternoon. He was admitted to the Brisbane General Hospital, and late to-night his condition was regarded as serious, but satisfactory. His brother was treated by ambulance bearers for minor injuries. The Aircrafts Pty. plane which took him to Brisbane left Wondai at 4 p.m., and arrived at Archerfield at 5.45.
