DETAILS OF DEATH

At 11.10 p.m. on Tuesday 16 April 1974 Senior Constable Large was riding a police motorcycle on routine patrol along the Northern Highway heading towards Kilmore. When some 60 yards from the intersection of the Hume Highway he attempted to overtake a horse float being driven in the same direction. As he did so a Volkswagon sedan turned from the Hume Highway into the Northern Highway. The headlights of the oncoming vehicle temporarily blinded him and his motor cycle struck the offside of the horse float. He rebounded off that into the path of the Volkswagon and was killed instantly.
