I-95 Wreck Kills One

According to an article in the Savannah Morning News on, a man from Riverdale was killed on Thursday in a wreck involving a semitruck that he was riding in.

Police said that the incident took place around 10:30 p.m. on I-95 near exit 21. Witnesses reported that the truck never slowed when it left the roadway down a steep incline. It then crashed into a tree and partially overturned.

The driver of the rig was found behind the wheel and was incoherent. The police are unsure if there was a medical issue involved or something else, like fatigue. The driver told police that the last he remembered, he was travelling south on I-95.

The deceased, James McWilliams, from Riverdale, was removed from the truck’s cab by emergy workers using the Jaws of Life. However, he died after an ambulance had taken him from the scene.

The driver was hospitalized, and was in good condition Friday afternoon according to the article.

We offer our sympathies to the family and friends of Mr. McWilliams and hope that the driver who was injured is able to make a full recovery.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
