Officer Lane was electrocuted by an exposed wire from a lamp post at the intersection of Grove Street and Prospect Street. He had notified the desk sergeant of the broken lamp, but when the electric company failed to show up he attempted to fix it himself. As he climbed up the lamp post, the entire lamp post collapsed and landed on top of him. An exposed 2200 volt wire came in contact with him, killing him.

Officer Lane had been with the agency for 3 years.
