UPDATE: Traffic Fatality on Helen Street

The vehicle accident on Helen Street has been cleared and all lanes of traffic are now open.


The investigation has revealed 50-year old Darnel Williams of 1904 Eichelberger Drive was operating a Ford F150 pick-up truck at a high rate of speed while traveling in-bound on Helen Street.  Williams attempted to pass a female who was operating a Ford Mustang when his truck clipped the rear end of the Mustang causing him to veer off of the road hitting a utility pole, ejecting Williams from the vehicle.


Williams was pinned underneath his vehicle and died at the scene of the accident.


The driver of the Mustang did not sustain any injuries.


There is no further information to release.
