A police constable died from injuries he received in a motor vehicle crash on Constant Spring Road in St Andrew on Sunday.
The deceased has been identified as 23-year-old Delroy Hinds, who was assigned to the Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch.
Reports from the Half-Way Tree police are that sometime after 2 am, Constable Hinds was a passenger in a Toyota Belta motor car being driven by another police constable.
The driver allegedly lost control of the vehicle and collided with a utility pole. Both men sustained injuries and were taken to the hospital, where Constable Hinds died while being treated.
The driver remains hospitalised.
The constabulary’s Chaplaincy Branch and Welfare Department are providing support to the family, friends and colleagues of Hinds.
The police high command has since expressed condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of the late law enforcement officer.
