An officer with the Georgia Southern University Police Department has succumbed to injuries he sustained in an off-duty vehicle collision last week.

The agency said on Facebook, "We appreciate the kind words we have received and those who showed their support of our fellow officer Tristan Clemmons and his family as we escorted him back to Statesboro today."

The post continued, "Tristan was a remarkable young man who inspired all of us with his willingness to serve others."
