Patrolman Victor Cooper and Patrolman Clarence Clark were killed in an automobile crash near the intersection of Farmers Boulevard and 114th Avenue, St. Albans, Queens, while responding to a false alarm.

The vehicle struck a parked car after driving through a soft portion of roadway while en route to the call. Patrolman Cooper was riding a police car for the very first time after having been on foot patrol for the previous 11 years.

Patrolman Cooper had served with the NYPD for 11 years and was assigned to the 105th Precinct. He was survived by his wife, daughter, and two sons.

I am a Lieutenant at the 105 currently. We have built a new memorial wall and plan to dedicate it this spring. If any one knows how to get in touch with Patrolman Cooper's granddaughter, Ms. Donna Siegel (as posted on this page) or any other family, please contact me at the 105th Precinct. We will never forget.
