Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: NY   USA   Sat. Jul. 19, 1919
Summary: Patrolman Herman Radel and Patrolman Fred Pauley were killed in an automobile accident. Both patrolmen, along with a third officer were on patrol in Delaware Park. As the officers turned from the main road of the park onto Delaware Avenue their patrol vehicle struck a depression in the road. This propelled the vehicle forward, taking it downhill. The vehicle gained speed until it struck a tree, bounced off that tree, struck a second tree and overturned.

Patrolman Radel was thrown from the police vehicle when it struck the first tree. After being ejected from the police vehicle Patrolman Radel somehow struck the trunk of the car and suffered a fatal skull fracture.

Patrolman Pauley was also thrown from the Ford touring car. He died of massive injuries suffered when he struck the second tree the vehicle had hit.

The third officer was found trapped under the wreckage. Remarkably, the injuries he suffered were very minor.

Patrolman Radel had served with the Buffalo Police Department for 8 years. He was survived by his wife and eight children.
