Policeman Gilbert Reyes was killed when his police motorcycle was struck by a car during a chain reaction accident on Sepulveda Boulevard, just north of Sunset Boulevard.

A fully loaded gravel truck struck the car after its brakes failed. The car was pushed into Policeman Reyes and his motorcycle, throwing them 30-feet.

Policeman Reyes was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran of WWII and the Korean War. He had served with the LAPD for 11 years and was survived by his wife, son, daughter, parents, and three siblings.
