1205 Meadowcrest Drive
On September 12 at approximately 6:12 am, the driver of a 2015 Ford in what he told deputies was an attempt to commit suicide intentionally drove his vehicle into a house. Collins was driving west bound on Brandon Lakes Avenue, ran the stop sign and while driving between 60 - 70 mph, struck the back of the residence and went completely through the house, coming to a stop inside the house at the front door. There were two occupants inside the residence, but they were not injured.
Prior to the crash, Collins has also stabbed himself several times. He has been transported to Tampa General Hospital.
Structural engineers at the residence will determine the extent of damage to the house.
