CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

A woman accused of driving the wrong way on Interstate 95 while intoxicated in June is expected back in court next month.

The Georgia State Patrol said Patricia Collins, 24, was intoxicated while speeding the wrong way on I-95 when she struck a Bryan County deputy cruiser driven by Sgt. Bobby Crapse. He died in the crash.

Patricia Collins, 24, turned herself in Friday and was released on bond. Her next court date is Oct. 22.

The purpose of the calendar call is to update the court on where everyone is with the case - whether it appears to be heading to plea or to trial.
