Augusta Man Dies After Crashing Into Fire Truck

An Augusta man died after running into a fire truck that was parked on Mike Padgett Highway while firefighters responded to a wreck there Tuesday afternoon.

Richmond County Coroner Mark Bowen says 38 year old Ted Collins Jr. died at the scene of the crash.

A fire engine from the Augusta Fire Department was stopped so firefighters could work a wreck when Collins’ SUV slammed into the rear of the truck.  Officials say emergency lights on the fire truck were flashing at the time.

Collins died instantly and had to be extricated from his vehicle.
