Another vehicle ran the stop sign at the intersection of Fowler Avenue and Morris Bridge Road, and struck Officer Mann's vehicle on the driver's side door. Officer Mann was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries approximately one hour later. The driver of the other vehicle was also killed in the accident.

Officer Mann,
On today, the 50th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for Country as well when you served with the USAF-especially during WW II, the Korean and Vietnam Wars. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
