An off duty Maryland police officer was heading home after his shift when he was involved in a collision with another vehicle. The officer then hit a utility pole and was pronounced dead at the scene.
On October 18, 2012, a Prince George County police officer, twenty eight year old Kevin Bowden was heading home from his shift, while still in his police cruiser. When he reached the intersection of Branch Avenue and Surratts Road at around 3:00 pm, he collided with a woman driving a minivan and was sent straight into a utility pole.
Officer Bowden was pronounced dead upon officials’ arrival. The woman suffered non life-threatening injuries.
Investigators are still investigating the accident. A witness claimed that the officer had been cut off by another vehicle which resulted in the accident.
Unfortunately, this is only one of two accidents that resulted in an officer’s death in the past couple months in Maryland. Twenty three year old Officer Adrian Morris had died just two months ago and was killed as a result of the auto accident.
