Police said the collision occurred near Craig Road and Decatur Boulevard. The officer was involved in traffic enforcement when he struck the front driver’s side of a Chevrolet Suburban.

The investigation into the crash was being handled by the Metropolitan Police Department’s Fatal Detail, which is routine when an officer is involved in a collision while on duty.
