Officer Duthie drowned when his cruiser was washed away by flood waters when Sycamore Creek, near Sunflower, Arizona, overflowed. Officer Duthie was responding to assist stranded citizens due to flooding. He was driving on the Beeline Highway and did not see that a portion of the bridge had been washed out. His patrol car left the roadway, went into the creek, and was washed away.
A monument in Officer Duthie's honor was placed at the north side of the bridge.
