"2 BREMERTON MEN DIE IN WRECK
GEORGE AMES AND LEO NESS ARE VICTIMS
Thrown Tire Seen as Possible Cause for Accident Near Hoodsport Yesterday -- Bus Driver Instantly Killed.
George A. Ames, twenty-five, a driver for the Bremerton-Charleston Transportation company, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Ames, 137 Montgomery street; and Leo Ness, twenty-three, oil company salesman, were killed when an automobile driven by Ames left the road between Union City and Hoodsport late Saturday night and crashed into a big stump.
Ames, killed instantly, was impaled on the steering wheel post after the wheel had been shattered by the crash. Ness died twenty minutes after the accident.
E. H. Schreib, twenty-eight, a navy yard employe, riding in the back seat of the machine, sustained a wrenched back and other minor injuries. Schreib, taken to Shelton after the accident, was unable to give any reason for the mishap.
Cause Not Given.
While no cause for the crash was given, examination of the wreckage disclosed that one of the tires was missing and it is thought possible that it had been thrown, causing the machine to leave the highway.
Ames had been employed by the transportation company for the past six months and was well known here. Ness, also well known here, had just reported for work Saturday, having been transferred here from the Seattle office. The three men were going to a dance at Hoodsport when the crash came. The machine, a Dodge touring car, was practically demolished.
Long a Resident.
Young Ames was born at Mr. Vernon, but with his parents had been a resident of Bremerton for the past fifteen years, and had formerly been employed by the Union Oil company as its Hoodsport agent. He is survived besides his parents by a sister, Mrs. H. P. Harrier of Seattle, and a brother, S. F. Ames, a welder in the navy yard.
Ness resided in Seattle with his parents, who were reported spending a vacation at Mt. Rainier, and were notified of the tragedy there.
The body of Ames was brought to the Fred Lewis chapel in Bremerton.
Services will be held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock."
