Sergeant Frederick Brown was struck and killed by a New York Central Railroad train in the Black Rock yards.

Sergeant Brown was on duty and was checking on the patrolmen on their post. After he finished his rounds, he was walking back to the precinct. To return to the precinct, he had to cross over the New York Central Railroad tracks on Parish Street, near Tonawanda Street, at approximately 10:00 pm.

There was no flagman on duty at the crossing and as Sergeant Brown stepped onto the tracks he struck by a train that was backing. He was thrown 15 feet and landed on the tracks. Before he could get out of the way, the train rolled over him.

Sergeant Brown had served with the Buffalo Police Department for 13 years, and was assigned to the 13th Precinct He was survived by his wife, son, and two daughters.
