Correctional officer killed in U.S. 150 motorcycle accident

The News-Gazette recently reported that a Danville motorcyclist died in the early morning hours on Thursday, August 14th after being hit by a passenger vehicle.

The accident occurred in the early morning hours and claimed the life of Christoper A. Williams, 33, a correctional officer at the Vermilion County Jail. Williams was apparently traveling west on U.S. 150 when a teenager attempting to cross the highway collided with his motorcycle.

Williams was transported to Presence United Samaritans Medical Center in Danville, and was later pronounced dead at 1:13 a.m. The teenage driver in the other vehicle did not sustain any significant injuries but was cited for failure to yield. Williams’s autopsy is scheduled to occur at some point today.

The attorneys at Spiros Law, P.C., understand the devastating consequences that motorcycle accidents often carry. Our thoughts go out to those affected by this most recent tragic incident.
