Topeka police car involved in fatal crash

KSAL StaffDecember 11, 2016

Authorities are investigating after a Topeka police car was involved in a fatal accident with another car.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://j.mp/2gzTEXB) the crash occurred early Sunday. Police Lt. Andrew Beightel says the police cruiser and the four-door passenger car collided in an intersection, and that the crash wasn’t the result of a chase.

The driver of the passenger car was pronounced dead at the scene. The on-duty police officer who was on patrol at the time was transported to an area hospital with injuries not considered to be life-threatening. The name of the driver killed in the crash wasn’t immediately released.

The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
