Patrolman Smith had gone to work and found his radio wasn't working, so he went to a motorcycle shop to get it fixed. The shop was closed that day because it was Easter. On his way to another store, Patrolman Smith was struck by a car and thrown from his motorcycle.

Patrolman Smith had served with the agency for 2 years. He was survived by his wife, two children, four brothers, and two sisters.
