Patrolman Thomas Day was killed in an automobile accident while on duty.

Patrolman Day apprehended a suspect and at that time the practice was to have the suspect drive the police car to headquarters while the officer guarded him. This particular suspect, by intent or inability, was unable to handle the vehicle and careened wildly into a utility pole. Patrolman Day was killed. It is not known what became of the suspect.

Patrolman Day had been with the agency for 11 years and was survived by his wife and children.
