Between Train and Platform
A. J. Hudson Killed at Adams-Sq Subway.

Albert J. Hudson of 613 Main st, Wakefield, was instantly killed by being crushed between the station platform and the side of a moving train at the Adams-sq subway, just before 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon.

Mr. Hudson attempted to enter the first car of a four-car train at 12:50 by the center door, just as the door was closing. He carried a suit case, which he had thrust before him into the car, and at that moment the train started to leave the platform. According to the elevated authorities, Mr. Husdon was warned by a guard to drop the case and get back on the platform, but he clung to the case, and he was dragged along with the train.

The train had not moved very far before the motorman was signaled to stop by the brakeman on the rear car, who saw the body in the pit. Medical Examiner Magrath was notified, and he found that Mr. Hudson had been crushed to death. Dr. Magrath said that he did not believe that Mr. Hudson's body had been touched by the wheels, but the cars had passed over his left leg, which was mangled.

There were several persons on the platform at the time of the accident, which created a great deal of excitement. Mr. Hudson was identified by papers which Dr. Magrath found in his pocket. The body was removed to an undertaking shop. Traffic in the subway was delayed by the accident about 15 minutes.
