A Hamilton policeman has been given diversion after being charged with careless driving after a crash in Hamilton.

Constable Jason Lawrence Pope, 37, was on duty when he ran a red light and had a minor collision with another vehicle at an intersection with Cambridge Rd, Hamilton, on July 9 last year.

Pope was formerly based in the Te Awamutu area and at times had the role of acting sergeant.

Waikato police spokesman Andrew McAlley said an internal investigation was underway but was likely to mirror the criminal proceedings.

"The court proceedings are offering a guide to the outcome of the internal proceedings, but they are still to be determined," he said.

Pope was not present in Hamilton District Court when diversion was granted yesterday.
