Man From Hit-And-Run Crash Now Faces 3 Charges
The man that allegedly caused a hit-and-run crash, which took two lives and left one child in critical condition, is now facing 3 charges, according to this report from the Gainsville Register. Kendrick Demon Collins has been charged with two counts of accident involving death and a charge of accident involving bodily injury.
According to witnesses, Collins, driving a 2020 black Audi A6, made an unsafe lane change, which sent a gray Toyota four-door flipping off the road.
As we previously covered, Collins came to a stop about 100 yards away from the now-totaled Toyota, and, even after learning that three people were in the vehicle, he fled the scene. He did this without so much as calling 911 or checking to see if those inside the Toyota were okay.
Police responded quickly and witnesses put them on Collin’s trail. The Audi took the next exit and had to stop less than a mile away because of a flat tire, presumably acquired during the crash. Collins explained to police that he left the highway out of concern for his safety. And he had two cell phones in the car but they were apparently inaccessible because they were on the floor of his vehicle. He was taken into custody and is now facing the aforementioned three charges.
