ROLLER COLLIER
Roller Collier, of Gordonsville, was instantly killed by a hit-and-run driver as he was walking toward his home from Charlottesville about midnight Saturday. The accident occurred between Shadwell and Keswick on the Jefferson highway. Less than three hours later, Joseph Crews, colored resident of the Keswick neighborhood, was arrested on a charge of driving an automobile while under the influence of liquor and on suspicion of being the driver responsible for Collier's death. He is said to have confessed to Deputy Sheriff W. Abbot Smith. At the time of the accident Collier was walking towards Gordonsville on the right hand side of the road and was accompanied by his son-in-law, Emmett Raynor, also of Gordonsville. Raynor stated that a light roadster going at a rapid rate, ran into his -father-in-law, righted itself in the highway and disappeared down the road without any noticeable check in pace. Deputy Smith, who sought the hit-and-run driver, about 2 miles from the scene, on the sand-clay Boyd's Tavern road, found a roaster corresponding to the one described by Raynor, ditched on the side of the road. At the steering wheel in an intoxicated condition he found Crews. A second arrest has been made in connection with the killing - Allie Redman; also colored, who Crews claims was driving the car when Mr. Collier was struck. Mr. Collier's right leg and neck were found to have been broken. The funeral of Mr. Collier took place at Gordonsville Monday. Mr. Collier was a native of Greene county. He leaves a wife and three children.
