Fred Bingley Is Sixth Member of Highway Police, Killed in Two Years 

Special to The Star by Staff Reporter 

Hagersville, Oct. 4 – The late Fred Bingley, who was killed Thursday night near Caledonia while on duty as a provincial highway traffic officer, will be buried in Toronto on Monday afternoon from the home of his brother, Walter Bingley, 298 Wychwood Ave. 

Bingley was huried from his motorcycle when his sidecar failed to right itself after turning a curve on the highway. He suffered a fractured skull, and did not regain consciousness. He is the sixth Ontario highway officer in the last two years and will be accorded full police honors by his late associates, twenty of whom will escort the funeral cortege on their motorcycles. 

“Bad luck followed Fred, it seems” his widow told The Star. “It is his third accident in less than two years.  Christmas Eve, 1927 he was in Victoria hospital, London, with a broken collarbone. Last December he broke the leg which was injured so terribly last night. 

“He was happier yesterday than he had been for days and he telephoned me a short time before the accident that he was on his way home.” 

Four children survive Bingley – Fred, Eleanor, Edith and Edward.
