MIDDLEBURG, Fla. - The Clay County Sheriff's Office say Brook Collier backed over his wife Saturday night in a Middleburg neighborhood. Deputies said the woman was transferred to a nearby hospital, where she died.
Witnesses said Brooks Collier continued backing out of the driveway, knocking the wife to the ground, and the left front wheel of the pickup ran over her. According to the report, Brooks Collier continued driving away.
The arresting officer who made the traffic stop said there was an odor of alcohol coming from Collier (pictured, left), and he swayed while talking and his eyes appeared slightly red and watery.
Collier, 52, was investigated on a charge of DUI and a blood sample was taken. He was later arrested for failure to remain at the scene of a crash involving a death and booked into the Clay County jail.
According to the Sheriff's Office, Collier was arrested in February 2009 fleeing a law enforcement officer at a high speed and reckless driving.
