Newspaper extract Stamford Mercury - Friday 25 May 1911


On Monday evening a Cambridge undergraduate, whilst motor cycling to Cambridge, ran into a trap driven by Mr Arthur de Crespigny, of Burton Latimer Hall, when near Cranford. A motor car passed at the time and the motor cyclist did not perceive the trap owing to the dust. He was picked up in an unconscious condition, terribly cut about the head and face. Mr de Crespigny promptly secured medical assistance, and after receiving attention the unfortunate young man was conveyed to Cranford station and later by train to Cambridge.
