Eleven years after the Honorable Edwin Collier spares repeat offender for driving under the influence for two DUI(s) within three months, he veers into the Judge's lane of travel and strikes his vehicle head on.  Judge Collier and his wife, Ellen was driving in Gaithersburg when the head on collision occurred.  Judge Collier suffered a broken leg and fractured ribs, and his wife, Ellen suffered a compound leg fracture, fractured hip, fractured ribs and a neck injury.  It was determined that the repeat offender, Rene E. Fernandez who was tested after the accident, had more than two times the legal limit of alcohol in his system.
