Danville Public Safety Director Larry Thomason said about 12:30 a.m. Thursday, a 17-year-old female driving a passenger car on Avenue G attempted to cross U.S. 150, which is a divided highway in that area of the Heights neighborhood on Danville’s west edge. Mr. Williams was westbound on U.S. 150 on his motorcycle and collided with the vehicle, Thomason said.
Thomason said the 17-year-old did not suffer serious injury and was the only one in the vehicle. He said the incident is still under investigation by Danville police, but the 17-year-old was ticketed for failure to yield.
On behalf of the staff at Heroes Memorial Foundation, we extend our deepest condolences to the family, loved ones, and brothers and sisters who served with CO Williams.
