In the early hours of the morning of the 28th May 1872, Constable Curtin was travelling by wagonette on the Violet Town to Euroa road, in order to obtain a warrant for the arrest of a felon. During the journey one of the wagonette's wheels bumped into a hole and Curtin was thrown to the ground, suffered internal injuries, and died soon after.
