Harold St. John Jones, the driver of a motor-cycle and side-chair, from which Alfred Arthur Amyes was thrown near Kaituna on March 25, .sustaining fatal injuries, was well enough this morning to attend the adjourned inquest. • Giving evidence, he said when approaching a corner of the road a dog rushed out, and 1 in^ trying to avoid the dog he swerved off the good part of the road on to shingle, .which was pretty deep. The cycle seemed to r slide along a few feet and then overturned. A verdict was returned that Amyes died as a result of an accident, and that the evidence negatived negligent driving.
