Fatal Incident Summary
Wed. Jun. 18, 1930
Sheriff Justice was struck by a train and killed while he and a town marshal searched the Burlington Railroad Yards in Akron for a hobo who was wanted for creating a disturbance. As they stood on a side track to watch a freight train pass by they failed to observe an engine backing up. The marshal saw the train at the last moment and was able to jump out of the way, however, the train struck Sheriff Justice. He was taken to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries the next day.
