A 33-year-old Stockton (Calif.) PD officer died Wednesday just weeks after he was seriously injured in a car crash while on duty, the LA Times reports.

Officer Scott Hewell sustained serious injuries on May 28, when the patrol car he was riding in veered from the road and struck a tree, said Officer Joseph Silva, a Stockton police spokesman.

Hewell was released from the hospital on June 6. He was recuperating at his family's home but was rushed back to the hospital Wednesday, where he died, Silva said.

An official cause of death has not been determined.

My condolences go out to the family and friends of Officer Hewell. His accident sounds very similar to the accident a good friend and former partner of mine had who was also killed in the accident, was he by any chance driving a Crown Vic ? I have heard a few stories of unexpected and lethal problems with that particular patrol car.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Hewell,his family and his family in blue. My you rest in peace.
