Despite Rumors, Birdman Unharmed In Sister's Deadly Car Crash
According to The Times Picayune, Birdman's sister, Tamara Williams, was killed in a head-on collision when her vehicle was struck by a motorist driving in the wrong direction down New Orleans' Causeway Boulevard early Monday morning. Baby was not in the car.
The other motorist, who was identified as 30 year-old Jason Williams of Memphis, was taken to the CharityTraumaCenter in Elmwood, where he remains in grave condition. He had no relation to Tamara.
Col. John Fortunato, a spokesman for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, revealed that Tamara was driving north on Causeway Boulevard in her 2006 Toyota Camry. She was in the far left lane on the up-slope of the northbound overpass when Jason rounded the top of the hill in his 2001 Chevrolet Silverado and hit her head-on.
How Jason ended up driving south down the wrong side of Causeway Boulevard is still a mystery. Because of his condition, investigators have not been able to question him.
"We have no idea how he could have gotten on that side," said Fortunato.
Tamara, 26, was a married mother of three boys and was studying for a nursing degree at Our Lady of Holy Cross College. She was the youngest of six siblings.
