It is not yet clear if Fricke was responding to a call when the crash happened.

Investigators said Fricke also works full-time as a Warren County Sheriff’s Deputy. He works part-time as Hawk Point chief.

Hawk Point is about an hour northwest of St. Louis. It gained national notoriety in recent months following the abduction of Alisa Maier and the death of her abductor, Paul Smith, who lived in Hawk Point.

This is not the first time the Hawk Point police department has dealt with the sudden and unexpected loss of its chief. Chief Aaron Spalding died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 2005.

We have a crew on the way now to get this information and expect updates on this story throughout the day.
