Donald Williams Killed in Truck Accident on US-29 in Anderson, SC

Anderson, SC — January 7, 2023, 54-year-old Donald Williams died in a collision with a tractor-trailer on U.S. Highway 29 in Anderson County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 10:55 a.m. along Highway 29 near Lemans Drive. Preliminary investigation suggests only that Williams was driving a Ford pickup north on the highway as an 18-wheeler was southbound nearby. Somehow the two vehicles collided in the roadway and Williams was fatally injured. It's unclear if the big rig driver was hurt.

No further information is currently available.

If two vehicles headed opposite directions somehow collide in the road, it seems most likely that one or the other of them crossed over the center line. If that's what happened in Anderson then clearly one of the top priorities for investigators is to find out who crossed over and why.

Answering those accurately will take every source of data they can find. What does the data from each vehicle's Electronic Control Module say? Do debris analysis and tire markings give a more accurate picture of what occurred? Would forensic analysis of the vehicles find any malfunctions or defects? Did the big rig have a dashcam that recorded the moments leading up to the collision? Were there any witnesses?

All those potential sources of information must be rigorously checked to get the facts. That's important after any crash, but rarely is it more urgent than when people lose a loved one in unclear circumstances. That man's family may have many questions about their loss, so I hope authorities will make every effort to bring them the answers they deserve.
