Crawford County Fatality

A Gays Mills man was killed in a crash early Sunday morning in the township of Clayton. The Crawford County Sheriff’s office says at around 3:40 am they received a call about a single vehicle crash along State Highway 171 near Old 61 Road. The caller said the driver had been thrown from the vehicle. A crash report says 48 year old Steve Collins was driving east when his Jeep went off the right side of the road. The vehicle then reentered the road after hitting a fire number then went down an embankment. The Jeep went back into the eastbound lane before sliding across the highway and rolling. Authorities say Collins was thrown from the vehicle. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. The sheriff’s office did not say what factors may have contributed to the crash.
