Constable, 2533

On the 18th March 1877, Constable Collins was on patrol in the Wangaratta area when he fell from his horse. He received internal injuries and died on the 23rd March 1877, at the Wangaratta Hospital. At the subsequent inquest the Coroner criticised the Local Council, which had contributed to the accident by allowing an unlit obstruction to be left on the roadway.
