Constable Constantineau had just completed a motorcycle escort at the French Embassy. He was returning to the station when crossing the newly opened Bytown Bridge. His motorcycle struck an 8 curb and he was thrown and struck his head which resulted in his death. The bridge had only been opened 12 hours and this was the second accident.
Motorcycle helmets were not worn at this time.
