A police officer has taken his own life after he crashed the official police car in his care.
A police officer based at the Kiptagich Police Station, Kenya has committed suicide, according to K24 Digital.
He committed the act after crashing a police car while drunk.
The local chief Wycliffe Too told K24 Digital that the policeman, Fred Amaya, hanged himself in the station’s bathroom.
The scene was visited by the Kuresoi South Sub-County Commander and Directorate of Criminal Investigations officers.
Police said the officer did not leave behind a suicide note indicating the reason for taking his life.
