Four months after the accident, he was rushed to Newton Wellesley Hospital where he died of brain injuries sustained in the collision.

Patrolman Bell was a United States Air Force veteran of WWII and had been with the Newton Police Department for 8 years.
Frederick was the son of Francis Joseph Bell, Sr and Jane Winifred Cox. He was survived by his wife Evelyn (Carroll) Bell, his son and daughter, three brothers, William, Francis and John and three sisters; Winifred, Dorothy and Catherine.
