Clarke Co., GA (November 16, 2023) – A Clarke County crash claimed one person’s life, according to law enforcement. On November 14, the Athens Clarke Police Department was called to the scene of an automobile accident.
Official reports from the police show that a 30-year-old woman from Athens, Georgia, was driving on Commerce Road in a 2002 Chevrolet Malibu when her vehicle collided with a semi-truck, which was driven by a 31-year-old man. The driver of the semi, identified as 31-year-old Quentin Williams of Athens, Georgia, exited his vehicle after the collision. Williams walked over to the parking lot of the Shell Gas station at 1790 Commerce Road, where he met with his coworker, 56-year-old Robert White.
After meeting in the parking lot, the two individuals attempted to cross the road when they were struck by a Chevrolet Tahoe. Williams was severely hurt in the crash. He was transported to an area hospital, where he died from his injuries. White suffered injuries in the accident and was transported to a local hospital. The driver of the Malibu, identified as 30-year-old Jasime Littlejohn, was critically injured and transported to a local hospital. Investigations into the crash are currently ongoing.
We hope Robert White and Jasime Littlejohn recovered quickly following this accident.
Our sympathies go out to the family of Quentin Williams.
