Posted: Updated:

PALMER PARK, Md. (AP) - Prince George's County Police say an officer who died after crashing his cruiser had a blood alcohol concentration high enough to have been charged with driving while impaired.

Officers said in a news release Friday evening that speed may have also contributed to 26-year-old Officer Brennan Rabain's death on March 7.

Investigators had reported the Rabain was off duty and driving his girlfriend home when he spotted a speeding car. Police said Friday that Rabain reached a speed of 106 mph during the pursuit. Officers say Rabain lost control of his car, which off the road and crashed into a wooden fence.

Rabain's girlfriend survived the crash.

Chief Mark Magaw said in a statement that he does not condone Rabain's decision to drive after consuming alcohol.
