Patrolman George Eickmeyer was killed when his patrol car was struck by a Baltimore and Ohio Railroad train at the German Street crossing at approximately 11:40 p.m.

It is believed that he was attempting to exit his patrol car when he was struck, as his body was dragged a considerable distance down the track. There were no blinking lights at the crossing.

Patrolman Eickmeyer had served with the Tipp City Police Department for 5 years. He was survived by his wife, daughter, son, and six grandchildren.
