Webb pleads guilty to fatal crash involving Collins’ death

A 37-year-old Bloomington woman pleaded guilty Monday to being under the influence of alcohol during a crash that took the life of Illinois State University student Michael Collins.

According to the Pantagraph, Jamie Webb was charged with aggravated driving under the influence from the March 29 accident. The crash occurred on the corner of Main and Empire in Bloomington, and Webb was said to have been going between 45 and 60 mph through a red light.

Collins, along with three other females inside the car, was injured and rushed immediately to Advocate BroMann Medical Center. Collins died April 2 from multiple head injuries.

Webb also pleaded guilty to aggravated DUI due to another passenger’s injuries who was in the car with Collins.

A hearing will be held Oct. 23, in which McLean County Associate Judge Casey Costigan will determine Webb’s sentence, the Pantagraph stated.

Approximately two dozen members of Collins’ family attended the hearing. Many wore black T-shirts reading MCStrong across the front, referring to a campaign that his family started after his death.
