The woman involved in the head-on collision last month that claimed the life of a Bryan County deputy has been released from the hospital, according to Georgia State Patrol.

Patricia Ann Collins, 23, of Richmond Hill, is no longer under hospital care, but authorities are still awaiting results from toxicology reports to determine if she was intoxicated the night of the accident.

Collins was driving south in the northbound lane of I-95 just after 2 a.m. June 15 when she collided head-on with a K-9 unit cruiser driven by Sgt. Robert “Bobby” Crapse, who later died from injuries sustained in the accident.
Crapse, 32, who had been with the BCSD since 1999, was assigned to the K-9 unit and was on duty when the accident occurred. His K-9 partner, Seppe, suffered minor injuries from the accident and has since been retired.

According to GSP, the accident is still under investigation. Until the investigation is complete, any possible charges are pending.
