Investigators from the Georgia State Patrol say it could be months before they decide to file charges against Patricia Collins for her involvement in a wrong way crash.

Collins was driving the wrong way on I-95 when she struck Bryan County Deputy Robert Crapse. Crapse died at the scene of the accident.

Georgia State Police say that Collins’s blood alcohol level was .139; the legal limit in Georgia is .08.

WTOC reports that Collins was treated and released from the hospital.

According to investigators, it could take three to six months to complete the investigation.
