Williams is charged in connection to a fatal hit and run collision that occurred March 4 on Old Mountain Road in Iredell County. 54-year-old David Morris Hawks of Statesville was killed.
The preliminary investigation indicated a pedestrian was walking on Old Mountain Road when he was struck by a northbound vehicle. The suspect vehicle failed to stop, and the pedestrian was soon struck again by a northbound 2004 GMC Safari. The pedestrian, Mr. Hawks, passed away at the scene.
Williams turned himself in Tuesday and was placed in the Iredell County Detention Center under a $50,000 secured bond. He remained in jail as of earlier today (April 14). He was scheduled to make a District Court appearance today.
