Event Description
On October 9, 1942, while pursuing a motorist, Motorcycle Policeman Byron D. Todd, 33, was killed when his cycle skidded, hurling him to the pavement in the 2800 block on Brookside.  Witnesses said that Todd, following a driver who had failed to stop at a preferential street, lost control of the motorcycle when it struck an unused streetcar rail, skidding 75 feed.  He suffered a skull fracture and died a short time later at City Hospital.
