BUTLER COUNTY, Pa. —
Police have identified the 20-year-old driver who died while attempting to flee police in Butler County on Wednesday.
According to investigators, Adam J. Williams, of Karns City, died after crashing his car during a short police pursuit on Muddy Creek Drive in Brady Township.
State police said the incident began when they attempted to pull over Williams for a suspended driver’s license and expired tags.
When the trooper hit his lights, Williams took off with his two children in the back seat, investigators said.
The vehicle crashed about 200 yards later, and Williams was thrown from his car.
“He took off over the hill and it ended with a cloud of smoke,” Lt. Tom Debovi said.
Officials said the 1- and 2-year-old girls were properly strapped into their car seats. Police said they’re expected to be OK despite being shaken up by what they witnessed.
Investigators said they’re still trying to figure out why Williams ran from police when he simply had an expired inspection.
Channel 11’s Amy Marcinkiewicz reported Thursday that a makeshift memorial was set up at the crash site.
