Charles Floyd Collins, II

Officer Charles Collins was killed in an automobile accident in Alaska while traveling between the Port of Eagle and the Poker Creek point of entry. He was driving on the Taylor Highway when his vehicle left the roadway.

His department vehicle went down a 200-foot embankment and landed in a rain-swollen creek. A passerby who saw tracks down the embankment notified Alaska State Troopers, who started a massive search along with other state and federal agencies.

Officer Collins' body was recovered on August 15th.

Officer Collins was a U.S. Air Force veteran and had served with the Office of Field Operations for eight years. He is survived by his wife and two sons.
