State Sen. Williams Cited After Fatal Crash

DENVER (AP) – Texas troopers say a Colorado state senator involved in a head-on collision that killed a pregnant woman has been cited with three misdemeanor traffic violations.

Investigators say Williams’ car drifted into oncoming traffic along U.S. 385 on Dec. 26 and crashed head-on into another car, killing 30-year-old Brianna Gomez of Amarillo. Gomez’s unborn child was delivered by cesarean section. Authorities have said Williams’ adult son and two grandsons weren’t wearing seat belts. Colorado state Rep. Nancy Todd has said the family told her that Williams’ son was trying to put pajamas on the boys at the time.

A grand jury didn’t indict Williams. But Texas authorities said Tuesday she was cited with driving on the wrong side of the road, having an unrestrained child under 17 and an unrestrained child under 8. Her son also was cited with not wearing a seat belt.

    I believe Suzzanne Williams should be charged for the death of the young Gomez woman, because of the car accident she caused, a life was taken and a child will never know it’s mother. The misdemeaners are important but where is the justice for the young mother. Suzanne Williams is a senator and she certainly needs to be held accountable, after all the law is for everyone.

    not very christian of you how would you feel if you were in williams’ position? Dont you think that just knowing your accident not only endangered and hurt your children, but took the life of a pregnant woman is bad enough! legally speaking the traffick violations are the only thing she can be charged with, and her being a state senator has nothing to do with that.
