Posted on 4/2/2019
Defendant: Everette Dayshawn Collins
Prosecutor Ron O’Brien said, “This man’s driver’s license was currently under suspension when he crashed the SUV he was driving into a mobile home in the early morning hours, killing the resident inside.” Prosecutor Ron O’Brien announced today that the Franklin County Grand Jury has returned an indictment against Everette Dayshawn Collins, age 29, for one count of (F-2) Aggravated Vehicular Homicide and one count of (F-3) Failure to Stop After an Accident, in connection to the January 19th, 2019 crash which resulted in the death of Judith Marie Wade, age 62. Collins was recklessly driving on Greenlawn Avenue at approximately 1:15 am when he drove through a metal fence and into a mobile home on Ronnie Lane, pushing the entire residence off of the foundation by several feet. “The airbag deployed in the SUV Collins was driving, which resulted in his DNA being left inside the vehicle on the airbag. Collins fled on foot immediately following the accident,” O’Brien stated. The victim was transported to the hospital following the crash, but she succumbed to her injuries approximately two weeks after the accident. Arraignment for Collins is scheduled for April 5th at 1:30 pm in courtroom 2B at 345 S. High Street in downtown Columbus.
