CHAPTER XXIII - TREACHERY AND TRAGEDY

Its significance was not lost on him for one moment, but he was baffled by the turn events had taken. Where did they lead if it was not an accident after all ?
As they went along to the unfortunate knight's home, Brewer told him as much of the story as he knew.
" No one touched him except the policeman ?" Gerry reflected, as he finished. " And you say the chauffeur was badly injured ? Anyone else about ?"
" No! Everything was dark and quiet in the road," replied Brewer. " What on earth such a lorry was doing along that way beats me ! It doesn't lead to any place that uses pig iron. Its practically a private road. The driver seems to have got a terrible shock and run away. But we'll be able to trace him through the lorry."
Gerry nodded his head. He knew the place well. Not only was he wondering about the lorry, but he thought the policeman was very soon on the scene too ! And the driver of the lorry had run away !-It was all very suspicious.
" Ring up the station as soon as we arrive," he said, his mind working rapidly, " and find out the name of the man on that beat, and anything more they know." He was pretty sure, now, who was behind this accident. But what a cruel revenge ! How could this help them to get the plans ? It was just a cruel, senseless murder !
He found the house in a state of confusion. It had been a great shock to everyone, and the crash had caused quite a crowd to collect. The lorry still stood where it had been backed away after the accident, and it was very little damaged. The car, however, was badly smashed, and it was quite easy to see that the occupants had not had much chance of saving themselves.
It seemed all clear to Gerry now. It was no accident ! How could a properly driven lorry have hit
