Patrolman John Timmons was killed when he was struck by an automobile on East Ohio Street at the 31st Street Bridge.

He and his partner had just gone on duty 25 minutes earlier and had stopped at red light while starting their patrol. Patrolman Timmons exited their patrol car to walk across the street when he was struck by an oncoming car that was traveling at an estimate 70 mph. He was dragged along a steel fence for over 30 feet before being thrown over a bridge railing onto railroad tracks 50 feet below.

Patrolman Timmons was a United States Army veteran of World War II. He was survived by his wife, daughter, father, six brothers, and one sister.
