CHP Officer Killed in Motorcycle Malfunction

Thursday, September 2, 1971

Officer Robert A. Mayer was killed when the front wheel of his motorcycle apparently developed a high-speed wobble that sent the motorcycle out of control. Mayer was thrown into the center divider and killed. The 25-year-old patrolman had been a member of the CHP for almost three years and had served at the Central Los Angeles and West Los Angeles Area offices.
