Camden Woman Killed in Ridgeway Crash

RIDGEWAY – A Camden woman was killed last week when the 2005 Nissan she was driving ran off the side of the road and crashed into several trees. Fairfield County Coroner Barkley Ramsey said 66-year-old Mildred Yvonne Williams, of 2903 Stewart St. in Camden, was traveling north on Highway 21 about 3 miles north of Ridgeway at 2:30 p.m. on July 17, when she ran off the left shoulder, overcorrected, crossed back over Highway 21, and ran off the right side of the road. The car struck an embankment, several trees and overturned several times, the S.C. Highway Patrol said. Williams was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident, the Highway Patrol said.

Ramsey said Williams was transported to Richland memorial Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries at 4:19 p.m.
