John Hart appears as a California Highway Patrol sergeant. This episode concerns a man who commits murders
of hitchhikers that he picks up. Chief Dan Mathews (Broderick Crawford) quickly determines the reason is life
insurance fraud. An interesting show and it was nice to see John often in this episode. The "Highway Patrol" series
is currently owned by MGM and it would be nice to see the entire series released in a dvd set soon.
