Patrolman Thomas Kennedy and Patrolman Michael Reedy were stuck and killed by a vehicle while directing traffic at an accident scene on Route 303.

Patrolmen Kennedy and Reedy, and other emergency personnel, were at the scene of a serious accident on State Rt. 303 in the Hamlet of Blauvelt. The accident scene was closed off and well lit by flares and emergency lights of Police, Fire and Ambulance vehicles. A drunk driver coming north at a high rate of speed passed the flares, drove over the fire hoses and struck Officer Reedy and Officer Kennedy who were standing together in the roadway.

Officer Kennedy had been with the agency for only six months.
