WARNER ROBINS — A one-car traffic accident Saturday morning in Warner Robins claimed the life of an Americus resident.

According to published reports, the accident occurred shortly after 8 a.m. on Watson Boulevard near Carl Vinson Parkway.

A preliminary investigation by the Warner Robins Police Department reveals that a 2017 Chevrolet Malibu, driven by Johnny Williams, 52, of Americus, was traveling east on Watson Boulevard when the car left the roadway and crossed the center lane and two westbound lanes. The report says the vehicle struck the curbing of the westbound side and continued east into the grass striking a utility pole and a large power transformer before coming to rest in the grass behind Home Depot.

The driver and passenger, Williams’ 60-year-old wife, Evelyn Williams, both sustained serious injuries, according to reports, and were transported to Navicent Health Macon. Evelyn Williams died a short time later, and the driver was in critical condition.

The Warner Robins Police Traffic Division is in charge of the investigation.
