Trooper Stanley C. Greene, 29, died on February 28, 1936, a few hours after his motorcycle struck the rear of a truck on the Albany-Schenectady Road.
Trooper Greene never regained consciousness after the collision and he died at Memorial Hospital from skull and internal injuries.
At the time, Trooper Greene was operating the first radio equipped motorcycle assigned to the Troop G area.
Witnesses to the collision observed Trooper Greene grab for his Stetson when it was caught by the wind, just as the truck he was following slowed to make a turn.
Trooper Greene was assigned to the Newtonville outpost.
