About 9.30 a.m. 6 April 1912 Constable Crimmin was riding along O’Callaghans Parade Horsham. He was on his way to Greens Park to serve a summons. He saw a cyclist riding along the footpath and turned his horse in an apparent bid to follow this person. However as the horse cantered along it suddenly leaped forward and Crimmin who had been riding on a tight rein was pulled from the saddle and crashed headlong to the roadway. He died in hospital at 12.40 p.m. the same day never having regained consciousness.
