Officer Salo succumbed to injuries sustained earlier in the night when he was struck in the head by a baseball while on duty at the Third Ward Ball Park. He refused medical treatment after being hit and continued his duties of crowd control and directing traffic until he collapsed. He was taken to St. Mary's Hospital where he died of his injuries.

Officer Salo was a Merchant Marines veteran of WWI. He was also a local track legend and had won a trans-continental race from New York City to Los Angeles. He had served with the Passaic Police Department for 3 years and was survived by his wife.
