Hubert Carl Paul

Policeman Hubert Paul succumbed to injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash the previous day on the Dixie Highway near Douglas Road.

He was patrolling the Dixie Highway when his motorcycle skidded into a rock wall. It is believed he was attempting to stop a speeding motorist and was possibly rundown by the driver. He was taken to a local hospital where he died after undergoing surgery.

Policeman Paul was a military veteran and had served with the Coconut Grove Police Department for only three days at the time of his death. He had previously served with the Michigan State Police. He was survived by his wife, mother, and brother.

The day following Policeman Paul's death the city of Coconut Grove was annexed by the city of Miami.
