George William Bush

Chief George Bush was killed in an automobile accident while returning from an investigation near Orleans in Orange County.

Shortly after 1:00 am, Chief Bush was traveling northbound on State Road 37, just south of the Lawrence and Orange county line, when his vehicle left the roadway and sheared off a telephone pole. A passing motorist was able to summon local citizens to extricate Chief Bush who was pinned beneath the vehicle. Despite their efforts, which took over 45 minutes, Chief Bush died of a fractured skull and a broken neck. It was believed a blown right rear tire on his vehicle was the cause of the accident.

Chief Bush had served with the Mitchell Police Department as its chief for two years. He was survived by his wife, son, three daughters and father.
