HER INJURIES FATAL.
Mrs. Mary HOUGHTON, a decrepit, gray-haired woman, died yesterday afternoon, at 1015 East Fourteenth street, from injuries received by being struck by a Troost avenue cable car at Twelfth and Troost three weeks ago. Mrs. HOUGHTON was 61 years old and was the widow of H. H. HOUGHTON. She was in poor circumstances and for years had been supported by relatives.
While out for a walk on the afternoon of May 23 she was struck by the cable car, having walked directly in front of it. Her left collar-bone was broken and she was severely bruised about the body. Her injuries were not considered dangerous at the time, but because of her age she was unable to overcome the shock and gradually grew worse.
Coroner LANGSDALE will hold an inquest at Stine’s undertaking rooms this morning. The funeral will take place at 3 o’clock this afternoon. Interment will be in Elmwood cemetery.
