Judson Titus, the 3-year-old son of Archibald O. Titus, of No. 128 Monroe avenue, who was run over by a coal wagon on Wednesday morning last, died at the Homeopathic Hospital yesterday afternoon. Coroner Kliendienst was notified and an autopsy was held at the Morgue this morning. The cause of death was internal injuries. The little fellow was run over by one of Charles Bradshaw's coal wagons, driven by August Radke. He says the child ran in front of this team and then started back again, when he fell under the wagon. At first it was thought that the only serious injury was to the boy's right hand, which was severely crushed. But he suffered greatly from shock until his death and there were some indications of internal injury.
