The only son of Survivor Australia winner Tina Wesson, and the brother of Survivor Blood vs. Water contestant Katie Collins, died in a car accident this morning, according to a news station. Taylor was 25.
Knoxville CBS affiliate reporter Lauren Davis reported on Twitter that the “25 yo son of local Survivor star Tina Wesson dies in car wreck this morning in Chattanooga.” There were no other details, but Davis’ tweet teased a report during the 4 p.m. newscast about his death.
Yesterday, Tina referenced him in a tweet, misreading another user’s tweet as being about that person’s five brothers. Tina wrote, “5 brothers! Poor girl, Katie barely survived one!!!”
Update: The Knoxville Times Free Press reported that Taylor Lee Collins was in the front passenger seat of “a car that went off the road today and struck the wall of a garage”; he “was ejected from the vehicle before being taken to a local hospital where he then died from the injuries he had received.”
