Norman C. Philbrick

Police Officer Norman Philbrick was directing traffic at the scene of a major structure fire in Auburn when he was struck following the collision of two fire trucks in an intersection.

The force was so great that the handgun Officer Philbrick was wearing was bent to nearly a ninety degree angle. To this day, the gun is mounted on a plaque at the police department as a memorial to Officer Philbrick. His badge number was also retired in his honor.

Officer Philbrick had served with the Auburn Police Department for two years. He was survived by his wife and two daughters.
