Around 2:00 p.m. Motorcycle Officer Hugh S. Fuller was en route to a vehicle accident at Ninth and Broad streets. Just one block from the accident scene he struck the side of a motorist making a turn in the intersection of Ninth and Bluff streets. The motorist was en route to the hospital to see his seriously ill wife. He accompanied the injured officer to the hospital. Officer Fuller died one hour later at 3:00 p.m. at Wichita Falls Clinic Hospital. Fuller had been a night patrolman and had transferred to the motorcycle unit several weeks earlier. He had been well known motorcycle racer since he was a teenager and had won many awards. Fuller’s wrecked motorcycle was placed in the lobby of the police station for many years.

When I came across this family member and found out what had happened, I could not let it go.
For your Mother, your Wife and all those that knew you, I am so thankful that I took the time and followed through. You deserved nothing less and I can only hope by giving this small part back to you, that it may bring you and them some peace
