    "Killed in automobile accident, early this morning, east of Belleville (Ontario)"

    Hood's 1935 Ford convertible coupe collided with a 1937 Chevrolet truck, driven by George Pratt of Verdun, Quebec. The Ford was smashed beyond repair.

    ?"

    ABS and Battle of France Then and Now both have P2244 as the a/c involved. ABS records that P2234 was included in a batch transferred to RCAF.
