Summary: Patrolman Leroy Warren was killed in an accident during a vehicle pursuit. He and his partner attempted to stop a vehicle they observed disregard several traffic signals. The vehicle had also been involved an earlier hit-and-run.

As the patrolmen chased the vehicle on East High Street they were involved in a collision at the intersection of South Limestone Street. Both officers were thrown from the vehicle. Patrolman Warren was killed instantly.

The driver of the vehicle was apprehended and sentenced to 18 months in jail for his part in the pursuit. He also was sentenced to a longer term for other charges. In 1972 the same suspect was involved in another vehicle pursuit that ended in a felony traffic stop.
