Police Officer Eddie Hobson was killed in an automobile crash while responding to a disturbance call.

During his response a vehicle turned left in front of him causing a collision in front of 2217 North Western Avenue (modern day James H. McGee Boulevard). His cruiser then slid into a telephone pole on the driver's side door. The driver of the vehicle fled the scene but was later arrested and he plead guilty to misdemeanor vehicular homicide.

Officer Hobson had served with the Dayton Police Department for eight months. He was survived by his wife, son, and two daughters.
