dying tomato plant

HELP!!! One of my tomato plants has wilted and is not improving with care.
It has fully formed fruit on it but they are still very green. Will these ripen if I pick them and destroy the affected plant?
I am not sure why the plant has died but the other plants around it are all OK.
Sorry I cant upload a photo as I am computer illiterate in that area.

Your green tomatoes will ripen a bit more but you won’t get the sweetness of a plant-ripened one. I would harvest the fruit and look for recipes using green tomatoes – there are many – or use green tomatoes plus some lime juice as a substitute for tomatillos. Salsa!
