Officer Wayne Pitt succumbed to injuries sustained four days earlier when he was dragged by his patrol car at the intersection of Mt. Pleasant Street and Lamont Street, NW.

Officer Pitt was providing traffic control for a religious procession and had stopped traffic at an intersection. As the procession passed, Officer Pitt observed a scooter that was about to enter into the path of the procession and he exited his patrol car to stop it. He re-entered the patrol car when he realized that it was still in gear. The patrol car struck the scooter, another vehicle, and a tree.

He was transported to a local hospital where he remained until succumbing to his injuries.

Officer Pitt had served with the Metropolitan Police Department for four years and was assigned to the Third District's Substation. He had previously served with the Raleigh, North Carolina, Police Department for 20 years.
