Ottawa Journal 28 September 1925

Train hits an Auto Arnprior Lady Hurt
Mrs. Wm. Bahm's leg, arm and hand severely fractured.

Arnpriorr, September 17th - Mrs. William Bahm received injuries Saturday morning when the car in which she and her son were driving was struck by the morning C. P. R. local at a crossing about a mile west of Arnprior. The place where the accident took place is commonly known as Mulcahy's crossing and due to a sharp turn in the road and the high rock cut it is almost impossible to see a train approaching from the west.

Mr. Bahm, who was driving the car, escaped injuries except for a shaking up but the car was completely demolished.

Mrs. Bahm received a fractured left leg, a fractured right forearm and hand, and also was severely bruised, and suffering from shock. She was placed on board the train and taken to the Ottawa Civic Hospital, where she is being attended by Dr. H. B. Moffatt. While very painful, her condition is not considered serious.
