Surry County (N.C.) emergency services officials have confirmed that the man airlifted from the scene of a Friday motorcycle wreck has died.
“The incident has now become a fatality,” said Surry County Emergency Services Director John Shelton late Monday morning.
While he couldn’t confirm the exact time of death, Shelton said his department was notified Monday by officials with Wake Forest Baptist Hospital, where victim Stanley Gray Collins, 75, was taken following the accident.
Collins, of 4123 Flower Gap Road in Cana, was reportedly traveling toward Mount Airy on a Honda Goldwing around noon Friday when state Highway Patrol troopers believe he ran off the right side of the roadway, striking a utility pole and a mailbox. Shelton said the accident occurred on Pipers Gap Road in Mount Airy.
According to Shelton, Collins’ injuries were severe enough that they called for air transport to take him directly from the scene to Baptist Hospital, where he was initially listed in critical condition.
