Patrolman Charles Paist was killed in a motorcycle accident while responding to a call.

Another vehicle collided with his motorcycle near the intersection of Huey Street and 6th Street. He was transported to McKeesport Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries three days later.

It was determined that the cause of the crash was due to Patrolman Paist being distracted when a dog attacked his motorcycle. The driver of the vehicle that struck him was not charged.

Patrolman Paist was single at the time of his death.
