Off-duty officer involved in fiery crash after striking toll plaza


ORLANDO, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) — The Orlando Police Department sys that on November 18th, at approximately 6:18 a.m., officers responded to a single vehicle crash on the East/West Expressway eastbound near Andes Avenue. 

A pickup truck had reportedly struck the toll plaza and was on fire.

The investigation reportedly revealed that the truck was the personal vehicle of an Orlando police officer, identified as Frederick Rolle. No other vehicles were involved in the crash. 

Rolle has been with the department since November 2011.
