This article has been provided by the Elwyn personal injury attorneys at Justice Guardians and will go over the history of the automobile and auto body shops in the area.

The Invention Of The Gasoline Powered Vehicle

It was in 1606 that a man named Jeronimo de Ayanz patented his steam engine, however, many historians don't attribute the invention of the steam engine to him, simply because the engine had no pistons or cylinders.

Over the next several centuries, many inventors improved upon de Ayanz's design, making the steam engine more powerful and using it for purposes other than pumping water from mines. Then, in 1879, Karl Benz patented his gasoline-powered engine and by 1885, he had designed a built a three-wheeled vehicle that was powered by that engine. He named the vehicle the Motorwagen and patented the design in 1886.

Benz sold around 25 Motorwagens over the next several years and also built a four-wheeled version. He wasn't the only inventor working on producing a personal vehicle, however, and it wasn't long before Benz had competition.

With an increase in the number of personal vehicles on the road, it was only natural that one of those drivers would be the first to crash their car.

James William Lambert: Remembered By History As The First Person To Crash A Car

James William Lambert worked hard to design and build his own cars, the first of which was a three-wheeled car with one wheel in the front and two in the back. Lambert didn't know that his design made the car very unstable and he took it for a drive with a friend. One of the wheels struck a tree root and the car veered out of control.

Lambert and his passenger were unharmed, however, the car wasn't as lucky.

Following this accident, Lambert built a four-wheeled car but that vehicle burned to the ground when the engine caught fire during a drive.
