Patrolman John McConnaughey succumbed to injuries sustained the previous day when he was involved in an automobile accident while pursuing two vehicles that were drag racing on Route 30, at approximately 11:00 pm.

He lost control of his patrol car when it was forced off of the roadway by a vehicle that had pulled in front of him, which caused his patrol car to strike a tree and overturned.

Patrolman McConnaughey was a U.S Army veteran of WWII and had served with the Ligonier Township Police Department as a part-time officer for just over two years. He was survived by his wife and four children.
