‘Everwood’ and ‘Deep Rising’ Star Treat Williams’s Death Following a Motorcycle Accident!
According to police, Treat Williams, known for his roles in “Hair” and “Everwood,” perished in a car accident in Dorset on Monday. He was 71. The Vermont State Police verified the death in an online statement, stating that Williams was traveling along Morse Hill Road at approximately 4:53 p.m. when his motorcycle was unable to avoid a Honda SUV, resulting in a collision between the two vehicles.
“The Vermont State Police are investigating a fatal collision involving an SUV and a motorcycle that occurred in Dorset on June 12, 2023, in the late afternoon,” the statement read. “The motorcyclist has been identified as Richard Treat Williams, age 71, of Manchester Center, Vermont.”
The collision occurred on Vermont Route 30 just north of Morse Hill Road when a southbound 2008 Honda Element attempted to turn into a parking lot, according to the police.
“Initial investigation indicates that the Element stopped, signaled a left turn, and then turned into the path of a northbound 1986 Honda VT700c motorcycle operated by Williams,” according to the statement.
Williams, according to authorities, was unable to evade the incoming car and was flung from his motorbike, suffering grave injuries. As a consequence of the incident, he had serious injuries and was taken to Albany Medical Center in Albany, New York, where he was pronounced dead.
The second motorist was examined at the scene by medical authorities for minor injuries and was not transferred to a hospital. “The crash investigation is in its early stages.” A member of the Vermont State Police Crash Reconstruction Team was on the site Monday evening, and team members will return to the area Tuesday, June 13, to finish processing the scene,” the Vermont State Police stated.
Trooper Jared Lacoste of the Shaftsbury Barracks was the first to arrive. Just hours before the tragedy, Williams tweeted a video of himself grooming the lawn. “We are mowing today. He wrote, “I wish I could bottle the scent.” “What a real Vermonter does,” Williams wrote in a second tweet.
According to Jacob Gribble, the fire chief for Dorset, Vermont, the incident occurred on Monday at 5 p.m. on Route 30 by Long Trail Auto near Dorset, Vermont.
According to Gribble, the incident included only one automobile and Williams’ motorcycle. Investigators suspect the car’s driver was turning and did not notice the motorbike. According to Gribble, the only person injured was the biker, who was airlifted to a hospital in New York by a LifeNet helicopter.
The Manchester Fire Department arrived and prepared the helicopter landing zone. East Dorset Fire and Rupert Fire were among the other emergency agencies that responded.
Later that day, the Vermont State Police issued a news statement verifying Williams’ name and providing facts of the collision. The investigation is still in its early stages, according to police, and team members will return to the area on Tuesday, June 13, to finish investigating the evidence.
The actor’s long career in movies and on TV started in 1975 with the movie “Deadly Hero.” In his long career, he had parts on the TV show “Heartland” in 2007 and on “Chesapeake Shores” from 2016 to 2022.
