John Mee

Patrolman Mee was on mounted patrol when his horse was struck by an automobile and he was killed. The vehicle driver was unable to see Patrolman Mee due to heavy fog, and only noticed him at the last second. The driver was able to swerve out of the way of Patrolman Mee's horse, but struck a pole and rebounded off of it into the horse. The horse fell to the ground, causing Patrolman Mee to strike his head on the ground.

Patrolman Mee was taken to Flushing Hospital, where he died from his injuries.
