ERICKSON--Near Longmont, Saturday, Feb 25, 1905, the result of an accident, E. B. Erickson, aged 62 years.
Mr. Erickson was returning home Saturday with a load of chop and was on the old Burlington road southwest of Longmont. It must have been just before he reached the railroad that the horses got the best of him and commenced to run and it is supposed that when the wagon struck the tack it threw him out, the wheels passing over his head, fracturing the skull for forehead to chin and scraping the flesh off one side of the face, for he was dragged several hundred feet. Dr. Janet Clark found him in a a conscious state and he requested to be take to Dr. Stradley for treatment. He was brought to Dr. Andrews hospital and a bone taken from his head, but he died before six o'clock p.m.
Mr. Erickson was a well to do farmer, highly thought of those who knew him. As he was a man of good habits no can reason can be assigned for the accident.
