The Richmond Hill woman charged in the 2012 wrong-way crash that killed a Bryan County Sheriff’s deputy has reportedly agreed to plead guilty, but the charges she will plea to are unclear.

Patricia Ann Collins was charged in September 2012 with vehicular homicide and other charges for driving the wrong way in June that year on I-95 when she crashed head on into Bryan County Deputy Sgt. Robert “Bobby” Warren Crapse.

A Georgia State Patrol toxicology report found that Collins had a blood alcohol content of 0.139 on the night of the crash. It is illegal in Georgia to drive with a BAC above 0.08.

Her defense attorneys are reported hoping to have family testify and are requesting for 30 days for an open-ended plea date.

The final charges must be decided by the Chatham County District Attorney’s Office prior to the plea date.
