CLARK - Richard Clark, 30 years old, was instantly killed yesterday morning by being run over by a freight car of the Wabash Road at the Morgan street crossing. He was employed on the rail as a switchman, and the accident was due to the fact that he caught his foot in a frog just before the car reached him, and was unable to free himself in time to save his life. The body was badly mutilated. Deceased lived with his parents at the corner of 14th and Morgan streets.
