ON THIS DAY…… 18th November 1905
Man believes he was a motor car
The unfortunate man Keane, who created a sensation, at Colac by imagining be was a motor car and dashing head foremost into trees and buildings, is still in a demented condition in the Geelong gaol, where he was admitted a fortnight ago. He has almost recovered from the injuries received in his mad escapade, but his mental state is not improved. He has to be watched night and day by two special warders, and has been further remanded for medical treatment. Keane was transferred to Kew Lunatic Asylum.
