stemming from traffic accidents. The team found Williams had actually been the passenger in the vehicle, according to Trooper Alan Rhodes.
“ When I arrived there Williams was sitting in the back of a car with his family and EMS talking to him,” said Rhodes. “ He was initially arrested but all charges against him were dropped yesterday afternoon [ Sept. 22] after the reconstruction was finished.”
Though Rhodes said Williams had been drinking, he also stated it did not matter because he was the passenger and not driving the vehicle at the time. An autopsy is being performed on Billups which will tell them if alcohol or drugs contributed to the fatal accident or not. It will be roughly two months before the results of those tests will be available.
It was also found Williams had been wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash — a fact that likely saved his life, according to Rhodes.
