    RIP brother. I wonder if he fell asleep. I have seen many PD accidents and been involved in one where the Officer was over tired and fell asleep behind the wheel and struck a parked car, pole or other object in the early hours of the morning. What ever the reason, my thoughts and prayers are with Officer Abraham and his family.
