Helena mayor, Montana US Senate candidate charged with leaving crash scene

Helena mayor and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Wilmot Collins is accused of rear-ending another driver's vehicle and leaving the scene of the crash.

Collins, 55, is being charged with misdemeanor counts of careless driving and failing to remain at the scene of an accident.

Kimberly Doherty, a 35-year-old Butte woman, reported a hit-and-run crash around 6:42 p.m. Monday. Doherty told Helena police she was driving southbound on Last Chance Gulch before stopping to turn left onto Lyndale Avenue, when she was struck from behind by a vehicle driven by Collins.

Doherty told police she pulled over as Collins continued west on Lyndale. She later told the Independent Record she followed him while honking her horn, and they both pulled into the Van's Thriftway parking lot in the 300 block of Euclid Avenue.

1. Mayor Collins FB page.

Says that his car was not damaged and there was slight damage to her car. I'm not on FB but my sister is and she read it to me.

To me this sounds a little racist. I don't want to make assumptions but Montana isn't very open minded. And Mr. Collins is running against Steve Daines (R) for the Senate seat.
