An off-duty Fuerza Pública officer has been detained to face allegations after a 46-year-old man died when the policeman’s car was involved in a collision late Friday.
The dead man was identified by the last name of Angulo. He was the driver of a second car that was headed south on Ruta 21 between Nicoya and Santa Cruz. The collision was head-on.
Before the crash, the policeman was the object of a 911 call because he was driving erratically, said the Judicial Investigating Organization. He was subjected to an alcohol test, and agents said that the paperwork of his car was not in order.
