Virginian, Killed by London Taxi, Did Not Know Rule of Road.
LONDON, Nov. 30.—Frank Lecompte of Richmond, Va., fatally injured by a taxicab in the Haymarket, was another American victim of unfamiliarity with the English traffic rules by which vehicles pass to the left, the coroner was told today by the cab driver.
Lecompte, he said, was looking in the wrong direction when struck. The driver was exonerated. A nurse testified that Lecompte had been traveling in Europe for his health.
