Officer Matthew J. McNally

Shortly before midnight on November 19, 1930, Patrolman Matthew McNally and his partner Joseph Petit were working a two-man car and were assigned to investigate a two-car motor vehicle accident on East Main Street. While both officers stood in the roadway investigating the accident, a car being driven by Adrial L. Wolff struck Patrolman McNally almost completely serving McNally's left leg.

Patrolman McNally was transported to St. Mary's Hospital where at 3:20 a.m., he died of his injuries. The drive of the striking vehicle, Wolff, was arrested for DWI.
