Newark, NJ Motorcycle Racing Wreck, Sept 1912
SIX KILLED, 22 ARE INJURED
"Eddie" Hasha, National Champion Motorcyclist, and Johnny Albright Crushed While Racing.
Newark, N. J., Sept. 10.---While several thousand persons assembled at the Vailsburg motordrome here Sunday were wilding cheering on Eddie Hasha, the champion motorcycle rider of the world, and Johnny Albright of Denver, who were competing in the principal event of the day, Hasha suddenly lost control of his machine and crashed over the top of the saucer track into the grand stand, followed closely by Albright. Both were killed, as were four spectators. Twenty-two of the onlookers were injured, six of whom are in the hospital in critical condition.
Hasha met death instantly. Albright was crushed so badly that he never regained consciousness, and died in a hospital here shortly afterward.
