The jury in Carleton Place blamed the McArton buggy for being on the wrong side of the road.  Sarah’s brother John had placed the family buggy facing west on Edmond Street so that the east bound traffic passed against them. Mr. Goth on passing east hit the buggy with both McArton siblings in it they were getting in after church. (St. James)
