A Jacksonville police officer was killed in a single-car crash early Tuesday morning, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. 

Sheriff Mike Williams said the officer, identified as Lance C. Whitaker, was responding to a traffic crash on rain-slicked I-295 at 4:30 a.m., when the officer hit a tree.

The officer was transported to a local hospital, where he later died.

Williams believes weather may have played a factor in the crash, ActionNewsJax reports.

Jacksonville is a combined city-county agency where police officers work for the sheriff’s office.
