Alfred Abbott Fifth Fatality

72-Year Old Man Hit Crossing Street Only Block From Home Friday

Green Bay's unprecedented series of pedestrian fatalities since Jan. 1 claimed its fifth victim Wednesday night when Alfred J. Abbott, 72, 722 Mather Street, died in a Green Bay hospital shortly after being struck by an automobile.

The accident occurred at Mather Street and Ashland Avenue, about a block from Abbott's home, around 11 o'clock. He was returning from a Masonic meeting.

Martin S. Germain, 36, 1193 Desnoyers street, driver of the car, told police he was going west. He said he saw Abbott step off the curb and then hesitate because a taxicab was approaching from the opposite direction, Intent on avoiding the cab, Germain said, Abbott walked into the side og Germain's car, although the driver swung to the right and into a telephone pole in an effort to avoid striking him. He was struck by the left windshield post and thrown to the pavement. The Green Bay-Brown county ambulance took him to the hospital, where he died within a short time. Germain was not held.

Abbott was born in Crewe, England, March 8, 1875, son of the late Alfred Abbotts. He had been employed by the North Western since 1900.

Survivors include his wife, three brothers, William and Allen, Green Bay, and Edward, Madison, and four sisters, Mrs. F. X. Basche, Mrs. H. L. Hannan, Mrs. L. H. Meister and Mrs. Adele Greenwood, all of Green Bay.
