Trooper William Levinson was killed when his motorcycle collided with a train at the 12th and State Street railroad crossing.

It is believed that his motorcycle experienced a mechanical malfunction which caused it to lurch forward and strike the slow moving train. Trooper Levinson was caught underneath the train and dragged approximately 350 feet.

Trooper Levinson was a U.S. Navy veteran of WWII and had served with the Oregon State Police for nine months. He was survived by his wife and two small children.
