Bridget Driscoll, age 44, was walking with her family on the grounds of The Crystal Palace in London when she was hit by a car driven by Arthur James Edsall. Edsall claimed to be going 4.5 mph and Driscoll's death was ruled an "accidental death" after an inquest.

1917 - At the age of 21 years old, Chester was alive when Russian government offices were seized and the Romanov's Winter Palace was stormed in the Russian February and October Revolutions.

Loeb was eventually killed in prison - Leopold was released after 33 years, dying of a heart attack at age 66.
