I wasn't aware of this, I heard the initial accident but didn't know about the fatality part, Haven't saw any press/news releases on it but then again, We're talking about greene county here. They don't realease crap on this unless word leaks out, I knew there was an accident but had no clue that it was a fatality..

I know what you mean. I checked all websites for info but nothing. It really is sad that you have to use a forum such as this to learn about news in Greene County.

Yes it was Gerald Collins , A very very dear man who will be missed by his family and the many many friends he has . Gerald just veered off the road and wound up hitting a tree. A friend of Geralds was following right behind him when the accident happened . Since there was no attempt to hit his brakes or straighten his truck we believe he had a heart attack or stroke . We will miss him.

My husband and his friend were first on the scene. A respiratory therapist arrived on the scene while mt husband was on the phone with 911. She told him to have them call a coroner. He said that there were no skid marks or ruts in the dirt. The police said they believe he was dead before he hit the tree.
