Patrolman Thomas Evers was crushed to death by a horse trolley while attempting to arrest a suspect.

Patrolman Evers had arrested a man at the scene of a family dispute and was walking him back to the station when, at the corner of Broome Street and Thompson Street, the man assaulted him. The suspect fled and Patrolman Evers commandeered the No. 2 Broadway horse trolley in an attempt to recapture the suspect. Patrolman Evers fell between the horses and the trolley and was crushed by the trolley.

Patrolman Evers had served with the New York Municipal Police Department for seven years and was assigned to the 8th Precinct, the present day 1st Precinct. He was survived by his wife and two children.

I said a little prayer today for Patrolman Evers and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.
