A QUEENSLAND traffic cop has been suspended from official duty over his involvement in a car crash that led to a person dying. 

A 31 year-old Constable from Road Policing Command was convicted in the Roma District Court yesterday on one count of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and one count of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing grievous bodily harm.

The court sentenced the officer to two years imprisonment, wholly suspended.
