It says the investigations into these incidents have commenced.

"The TTPS is indeed saddened by these two recent road traffic deaths involving officers of the TTPS and the Special Reserve Police and wish to extend its sincerest condolences to the families of the victims for their immeasurable loss," the statement said.
