    Hello,

    The tram driver escaped injury. Daniel Haines (43), who was aboard the truck, sustained a fractured skull and a fractured left arm, which proved to be fatal.

    Hello,

    In addition to the deaths already noted in my Post #3, there was one other death that occurred later on. Mrs Irene Winter (34), of Geelong West, a passenger in the RAAF truck, who sustained a fractured skull, fractured thigh and other injuries, died in the Geelong Hospital on 18 November, 1946.

    Col.
