"SUMMONSES AGAINST BILLY WRIGHT DISMISSED
"Two summonses against the former England and Wolverhampton Wanderers FC captain, Billy Wright, of failing to stop and failing to give his name and address after an accident were dismissed at Thames court yesterday. Wright, of Lyonsdown Road, East Barnet, was driving his wife's car in Bow Road on his way to see West Ham United play Manchester United when he was in a collision with a motor-scooter ridden by Mr. John Stoneman, of Leytonstone. Mr. Stoneman alleged that after the collision Wright pulled up a little farther along the road, walked back and asked, 'Don't you think you're bastard lucky?' Although he told him he had hurt his shoulder, Mr . Stonehouse alleged that Wright went back to his car and drove off when he asked him for his name and address.
"Wright said, however, he was not in a hurry, as it was only about eleven o'clock. Close to Bow Church a car on his inside pulled out to the right to avoid a stationary lorry and he followed suit. He heard a crash, and when he went back he saw Mr. Stoneman and his scooter in the road. Wright added that he asked Mr. Stoneman if he was all right and added: 'I am not accustomed to using that particular word he mentioned.' At no time did Mr. Stoneman ask for his name and address or say he had hurt his shoulder. Dismissing the summonses, the Magistrate, Mr. Cecil Campion, said there was a reasonable doubt in the case."
- The Birmingham Post & Gazette, Wednesday, 5 October 1960.
Death 3 September 1994 at his home in Barnet, North London, aged 70 years 209 days [registered in Hendon, September 1994] following a battle with pancreatic cancer.
He was cremated and his ashes scattered on the Molineux Ground pitch.
