Former New Zealand rugby international Jerry Collins has died in a car crash in southern France.

It's reported Collins died along with his wife, when a bus crashed into their car.

Collins was one of the New Zeland party that visited Donegal in 2005.

The 34 year was joined by former captain and cousin Tana Umaga and current centre Conrad Smith to officially name the Dave Gallagher Memorial Grounds, the home pitch of Letterkenny Rugby Club.

Collins also spent time in Ramelton, the birth place of Dave Gallagher who was the founder of All Black rugby.
