Detroit teenager facing murder charges dies after crash in stolen car

By Calvin Palmer

A Detroit teenager accused of killing two women while driving a stolen U.S. Army van last year has died from injuries sustained after crashing another stolen vehicle.

Gary Williams, 17, died on Sunday in Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit.

Police say he stole a car on Friday and was injured after drove through a red light and hit another car at the intersection of Warren and Scotten.

Williams and four other teens were in a stolen 2000 Dodge Stratus, which struck a Metro Car Lincoln driven by a 66-year-old employee.

The condition of the driver and the four other teens is not known.

Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office said Williams was charged Saturday with second-degree murder in connection with the August 9 deaths of Unique Neely, 19, and LaVette Lee, 20, both of Detroit.

DNA evidence tentatively implicating Williams in that crash did not get processed until last month because of a crime lab backlog.

Prosecutors had planned to arraign Williams if his condition improved. Two other youths who were in the van with Williams are being investigated.

Rosie Gardner, Neely’s grandmother, called it ironic that Williams died the same way he caused her granddaughter to die last year.

“But he should have never been on the street to cause that second accident,” she said.

    I hate too see gary allow peer pressure get the best of him. He was suppose to come back to school and graduate djcc. There’s no honor in death. You can’t die like a boss this ain’t the movies cause now he’s a memory.
