08-23-20: Deputy arrived on the scene of a motor vehicle accident at the intersection of Buck Grove Rd. at Gaines Rd. He observed that three individuals were involved in the collision. Jason E. Ray was complaining of hand pain, and Donald B. Collins, Jr. told the officer they didn’t require medical treatment, but officer observed a small cut on Collins’ head. The officer asked Collins if he was the driver and he stated yes. The officer asked him a few general questions about the collision, as he was walking past Collins. The officer noticed his speech was slurred, his eyes were glassy, and his pupils were pinpoint. Collins said he was not at fault. The officer spoke to Ray and he stated Collins pulled out from Gaines Rd. into the middle of Buck Grove Rd. causing him to collide with them. The passenger in Collins vehicle, Justin N. Thomas, stated he didn’t remember what had happened because it happened so quickly and that was the first wreck, he had ever been in. Collins told a firefighter on the scene that he wanted to be checked out at a hospital. As the officer was taking photographs and processing the scene, he got a witness statement from Steve Oliver. Oliver stated he passed Collings on Gaines Rd. and the vehicle was traveling in the middle of the road and was ‘speeding.” He didn’t witness the actual collision. He had just driven up on it after dropping a worker off on Gaines Rd. When EMS arrived, they assessed Collins and the officer walked up near the area on the side of the road they were working and smelled an odor of acholic beverage coming from that area. The paramedic approached the officer and told him he could smell an odor of alcoholic beverage coming from his patient’s person. His patient was Collins. The medics place Collins in the back of the ambulance. The officer followed them into the ambulance and smelled an odor of an alcoholic beverage. The officer asked Collins if he would take a PBT for me and he wouldn’t respond and was acting confused. The officer got out of the ambulance and spoke with the passenger. He asked if Collins had been drinking alcohol. The passenger replied that both of them had been drinking a little bit, but he hadn’t been around Collins all-day. The officer followed Med 3 to Harrison County Hospital to read the “Implied consent” to Collins since the officer had probable cause to believe he was operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol causing a collision. The officer believed Collins pulled out of Gaines Rd in front of Ray, causing him to collide with Ray.

Langley and her passenger stated that they were traveling west on US 60, and a small, dark gray passenger car, that was traveling east on US 60, ran them completely off the road.
