Officer Russell A. George was traveling south on U.S. 165 when his patrol car hit an abandoned bicycle on the road, causing the vehicle to spin off the highway and into nearby trees, according to The Town Talk.
After colliding with the trees, the cruiser caught fire, investigators say.
He had been responding to a call for assistance from another Ball Police Department unit when the accident happened, according to The Town Talk.
"Our heart goes out to the family. We're doing the best we can for the family and the fellow officers,” Ball interim Mayor Roger Toney said.
