The brakes on their patrol car failed, causing it to skid on wet pavement and overturn multiple times. Both officers were ejected from the vehicle and succumbed to their injuries at the scene.

Policeman Marple had served with the Los Angeles Police Department for 18 months and had previously served with the Glendale Police Department.
