The Deputy Police Commissioner, Walter Kola is again the subject of an internal police inquiry after being involved in yet another traffic accident.
The accident happened yesterday morning.
Solomon Star reported today, Kola rammed into a post on the sidewalk in front of the Central Police Station in Point Cruz with an official executive police vehicle.
While the Police Media Unit has released a general statement that “the Commissioner’s office has initiated an inquiry into a motor collision, following an executive motor accident”, an eye witness told the daily the accident happened at around 4am and that the Deputy Police Commissioner looked drunk.
Another police officer was reportedly in the vehicle with Mr Kola.
This is the second time that the Deputy Police Commissioner caused a traffic accident while drunk.
In July 2011, Mr Kola drove his vehicle in a house at Titinge.
He was suspended from duty after an internal inquiry into that accident last year.
