Williams, 23, collided with a second vehicle on Dec. 22 as he drove a black 2021 Chevrolet Corvette southbound in Plano, The Dallas Morning News reported. Williams’ vehicle hit a black Infiniti driven by a 71-year-old woman that was heading northbound and attempting to turn, WFAA-TV reported.

Both suffered minor injuries and were taken to area hospitals, the Morning News reported.

Officers said Williams’ speed when he crashed played a role in the accident, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

Plano police do not plan to fine and arrest Williams, the newspaper reported on Thursday. He has been asked to turn himself in at his own convenience.

However, if Williams is stopped by police, he could be arrested, the Star-Telegram reported.
