My grandfather, Ed Dawson, was a Sterling patrol officer working with Officer Card that night. He died in 1983 but if I remember correctly my grandfather told me that both of them were on Indian motorcycles and these two ran their roadblock and they gave chase when Officer Card was killed. I know that this incident really bothered my grandfather for the rest of his life.
