If you’ve been following the story about a Pontiac police officer being killed in a traffic crash, a driver from South Carolina is being blamed for his death.

33-year old Jason Collins of West Columbia, South Carolina was charged Thursday with aggravated DUI.  He’s accused of crashing into 29-year old officer Casey Kohlmeier and his drug dog partner Draco.  Investigators say Kohlmeier was parked in a median on I-55 just north of Route 23 when he was hit by Collins who was driving a pickup truck.

After being released from a hospital, Collins was taken to the Livingston County Jail.
