Clarence W. Dean

Officer Dean was killed when his motorcycle drove off of a section of the Newhall Pass Interchange which had just collapsed due to a major earthquake. Because of the early morning darkness, he did not realize that the elevated roadway below him had collapsed and was unable to stop in time to miss the fall and died instantly.

When the Newhall Pass Interchange was rebuilt again one year later, it was renamed the Clarence Wayne Dean Memorial Interchange in his honor.

Officer Dean had been in law enforcement for 26 years and is survived by his son and daughter.
