 The New York Police Department has identified an officer killed in an off-duty crash as Brian Kessler.

Police say the 28-year-old died Wednesday morning after his car collided head-on with a city-owned garbage truck in the Bronx.

NYPD Assistant Chief Larry Nikunen said the department extends its “heartfelt condolences to the Kessler family and the extended NYPD family for their loss.”

A police union said it is deeply saddened by Kessler’s death and is praying for his family, fiancé and NYPD colleagues.

Pictures show a damaged parks department garbage truck resting against the passenger side of Kessler’s sedan on the side of a two-lane road in Pelham.

The sedan had significant front-end damage.

Two parks department employees in the garbage truck were treated for minor injuries.
