Patrolman Charles Singer was struck and killed by a truck while directing traffic.

Patrolman Singer was assigned to a traffic post on forty-fifth Street and Eighth Avenue, Manhattan. He had stopped north and south traffic in the intersection. He then observed a truck that has stopped partially in the intersection that was interfering with cross-town traffic. Patrolman Singer approached the vehicle and directed the driver to clear the truck from the intersection. As he walked back to his traffic post, the truck jerked forward and struck Patrolman Singer. He was seriously injured and died a few hours later at Polyclinic Hospital.

Patrolman Singer was assigned to Traffic Precinct B and was survived by his wife.

I said a little prayer today for Patrolman Singer and his family. He may be gone but not forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.
