Caribbean Sprint Legend Kim Collins has been hit by yet another family tragedy. Collins younger brother was killed this morning (Dec 8) in an apparent hit and run accident .
Reports are that the 33 year old younger brother of the sprint icon Royston Collins was in the New Road area when a vehicle apparently struck him and drove off.
It took some time before Collins was discovered by a passer-by and a call made to the EMS. Before his demise Collins told medical officials that he was “run-over” by a vehicle. If you or someone you know has been involved in a hit and run accident, it is important that you contact a car accident injury lawyer in your area as soon as possible so they can offer you any help and support you may need.
This is the second tragedy to hit Collins in recent years. In 2013 Collins older brother Callustus Collins was shot and killed by police during an altercation.
In a brief post to social media the World’s Masters Sprint Record Holder Collins said “Life is short but death is long. you can live a long life and suffer a short death. May my brother please rest in peace.”
