Patrolman Carroll was killed in an accident with another cruiser as the two responded to an emergency call.

A youth had escaped from the Humboldt County Detention Home, and officers were dispatched to the location. The sirens were drowned out by the strong winds. The vehicles collided at H Street and 7th Street.

Patrolman Carroll had served with the Eureka Police Department for 18 years. He was survived by his son and daughter.
