Authorities have released the name of the woman killed in a crash occurring Monday morning in Pinson.  On Tuesday, the Coroner’s Office identified the victim as 32 year old Brittany Nishae Williams.

Jefferson County deputies responded to the scene on Highway 79, at around 9:30 that morning.  According to reports Williams, driving a Buick LaCrosse, was attempting to turn left onto 79 from Pawnee Road when she was hit by a Dodge Challenger that was traveling southbound on 79.

She was pronounced dead at the scene – meanwhile three children which were in the vehicle with her, were transported to Children’s Hospital of Alabama for treatment – at this point, no additional information regarding their condition has been released.
