Amy Louise Williams

From Robert Feder's column this morning. The driver of the car from Chet Coppock's accident last April has also passed away...

Amy Louise Williams, the former Chicago TV producer who was driving the car in which sportscaster Chet Coppock was fatally injured last year, died January 5 in South Carolina, according to her family. She was 50. The cause of death was not reported, but Williams underwent numerous surgeries after the accident near Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, on April 6, 2019. The car she was driving veered across a highway median and struck another vehicle traveling in the opposite direction. Her injuries included two broken legs, two broken femurs, four broken ribs and a broken arm. “After a lifetime of brilliant triumphs and crippling struggles, Amy is finally at peace,” her sister, Erin Clark, wrote on Facebook. In 2001 Williams won a regional Emmy Award for a documentary on elder abuse in Chicago produced for PBS station WYCC-Channel 20.
