By on November 2, 2017 in WNDB News

New Smyrna Beach, FL – A New Smyrna Beach Police officer and U.S. Army veteran was killed early Thursday morning when he lost control of the pickup truck he was driving, flipped the vehicle, and hit a tree in New Smyrna Beach.

FHP says Josh Calverley, 29, was driving a 2004 Toyota pickup north on US-1 in New Smyrna Beach when for an unknown reason he lost control of the vehicle. According to the incident report, it was around 1:45 AM when the pickup went into the medium and  Officer Calverley overcorrected, forcing the vehicle off the roadway and onto the east shoulder. The pickup then flipped and the roof hit a tree near Creekside Cir., just north of the New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport.

Officials say Calverly was wearing a seatbelt but it’s not known at this point if alcohol played a factor. The crash is still under investigation.
