A friend of the family named Linda Pulaski vouched that Collins was the student at the wheel of the Suburban.

Using police tape, the Palmer police department diverted all traffic from the Palmer District Court toward Pathfinder Regional’s entrance.

“The teenager was leaving school when she was part of a crash between her SUV and a tractor-trailer, police said.” said masslivenews on Twitter.

According to WWLP, a medical examiner was also spotted arriving at the scene of the accident alongside members of the Massachusetts State Police.

According to the police, the tractor-trailer driver was not hurt and cooperated with the investigation.

According to the police, staff members at Pathfinder Tech “have been working to notify all students and parents and will have support services available for all students and staff” on Wednesday.

To assist Collins’ family with the costs associated with the funeral, Pulaski set up a GoFundMe page. As of Friday afternoon, the page has raised $23,670, significantly more than the initial goal of $15,000.

“Mary was a bright, smart, sarcastic, beautiful, caring, young lady who was taken way too soon,” the GoFundMe reads. “Please help this family of six in their time of need to bring their daughter to rest.”
