Perry County teen dies in car crash, fire

A Perry County teenager died in a two-vehicle crash Tuesday morning.

Authorities said, Lacy Williams, 18, was killed when the car she was driving hit another vehicle head on. The accident happened on Janice Brooklyn road near the Clear Creek Methodist Protestant Church.

Family members said Williams' car caught fire on impact and emergency responders were unable to save her.

The teenage driver in the other vehicle was airlifted to a hospital with serious injuries. Williams' family members said the crash is not the first time she had been in an accident.

One year earlier, according to William' aunt, she was driving along the same road and was involved in a car accident which resulted in the death of her 14-year-old sister.
