Officer Sroczynski was killed when the patrol wagon he was riding in was struck by another vehicle.

About 6:30 p.m, Officer Sroczynski and his partner took a prisoner to the Safety Building. Officer Sroczynski, who was driving had just pulled up onto the ramp leading out of the police garage. As he started to drive north across State Street, a westbound car struck the police van.

The impact of the crash spun the police van around several times and Officer Sroczynski was thrown from the vehicle. The van then caught one wheel on a curb and toppled over, crushing him.

Police who heard the crash and several passersby rushed to the wagon and lifted it and pulled Officer Sroczynski from beneath it. He was taken to the hospital where he died 90 minutes later from his injuries.

Officer Sroczynski had been with the agency for four years. He was survived by his wife, parents, and sister.
