Frederick Wright

Officer Frederick Wright succumbed to injuries sustained four days earlier when his police motorcycle was struck by a speeding mail truck at the intersection of King Street and Maunakea Street. He was transported to Queen's Hospital where he remained until passing away. The officer riding in the motorcycle's sidecar survived the crash.

The driver of the mail truck was charged with manslaughter after it was told he was driving in a very careless and reckless manner. A year later he was tried and acquitted.
