A Bucks County Sheriff’s Office deputy died Tuesday night in a crash.

Deputy Keith Clymer, 47, of Kintnersville, was killed in a two-vehicle wreck along Route 313, which connects the Doylestown and Quakertown areas, the sheriff’s office said. The exact location and further details on the crash were not immediately released.

Clymer joined the sheriff’s office in 2014 and was assigned to the Domestic Relations Warrant Unit. He also served as a self defense tactics instructor.

“Keith was liked by all who met and worked with him. He will be sorely missed by all,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.

In July 2016, Clymer and Deputy Greg Appleton were snapped by a Doylestown newspaper photographer comforting children who were involved in a vehicle accident in Central Bucks County.

Clymer is survived by his parents and children.
