Raymond A. Geiger
CHP Officer Killed in Motorcycle Collision
Friday, August 10, 1956
Officer Raymond A. Geiger had just left his home to report for the graveyard shift when his motorcycle collided head-on with an automobile that was passing on a hill. Geiger, 28, died instantly from the impact. The accident happened so close to Geigers home that his wife, who heard the commotion, walked to the scene thinking her husband was handling the investigation. She was intercepted by another officer who was attempting to spare her the sight of the smashed motorcycle that belonged to her husband.
