The woman who was involved in the motorcycle crash that resulted in the death of Alex Collins is reported to have been “hysterical” in the wake of the incident as she had no idea where he was after their collision.
According to TMZ, the female driver of the SUV in question was heard telling the 911 operator “I can’t find him!” unaware that the impact had caused the former running back to enter her vehicle.
The 911 call was made a few minutes after Collins’ motorcycle collided with the SUV and the caller was frantic as she could not locate his body thereafter.
She is said to have told dispatch that the rider “hit me from behind.”
“I’m trying to look to see where he is,” she added.
Bystanders in the background were later heard screaming at her to open her door right away as Collins had been inside the whole time.
Collins, who was 28, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Many other players around the league expressed sympathy over the shocking and untimely death.
A former fifth-round pick, Collins played for the Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens in the NFL. His last football stint was in the USFL with the Memphis Showboats.
“Always quick to greet everyone with a smile, he was a genuinely kind person who carried a special joy and passion wherever he went,” the Ravens said of their former RB. “May Alex always be remembered for the light and love he brought to so many people in his life.”
