Adolph Sattler Run Over on Way After Medicine For Wife — Motorman Did Not See Victim

Holyoke, April 17 — Adolph Sattler, Jr., of 61 Arthur Street, was instantly killed at 8:40 tonight almost across the street from the Ingleside School while on his way to catch a street car. He was getting a prescription filled for his wife who had just been visited by Dr. G. L. Kinne.

Whether Sattler’s Death was due to being struck immediately by the street car of whether he was thrown in front of the car by a passing automobile could not be ascertained tonight. The only witness to the tragedy, so far as could be learned, was Ernest Laduke of 142 Elm Street, who told Medical Examiner Stanley Cox that he was passing at the time and saw the body of a man shoot up onto the curb shortly after saw the car stop. He could not say whether an automobile was concerned in the accident or not.

Dr. Cox said that Sattler had both legs fractured, the left leg being badly smashed, the chest caved in and the skull fractured. Dr. J. L. Bliss was also called in and investigated for the Holyoke Street Railway Company. Dr. Cox gave permission that the body be removed to Alger funeral parlors.

Mr. Sattler was born at Holyoke and was employed as a millwright at the Germania Mills. Besides his widow (Clara Ida Tauscher, 1879-1957), he leaves six children, Mrs. Charles Eger, Mrs. Walter Rehm, Raymond, Ester, Paul, and Pauline Sattler; his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Sattler, Sr. and five brothers, Amos, Ernest and William of Holyoke and Fred and Oswald of California.
