Chief Burnell Imhoff succumbed to injuries sustained five days earlier in a motorcycle accident at the intersection of Main Street and Custer Avenue. He had taken evasive action to avoid striking a vehicle that had also entered the intersection. His motorcycle left the roadway and struck a restaurant, causing fatal injuries.

He was first taken home, and then transported to St. Joseph's Hospital, where he remained until succumbing to his injuries.

Chief Imhoff was a U.S. Army veteran of WWI and had served with the New Holland Police Department for 2 1/2 years. He was the agency's first police chief and was survived by his wife and three daughters.
