The Star Of ‘Everwood’ And ‘Prince of the City’ Actor Treat Williams Dies In Motorcycle Accident At 71

Barry Mcpherson, Williams’ rep released an official confirmation to the People’s  magazine saying, “He was killed this afternoon….”  

The authorities stated that around 4:53 pm on Vermont Route 30, near Dorset, “a southbound 2008 Honda Element […] attempted to turn left into a parking lot.” The initial investigation suggests that  the Element “stopped, signaled a left turn, and then turned into the path of a northbound 1986 

Honda VT700c motorcycle operated by Williams.” However, the actor “was unable to avoid a collision and was thrown from his motorcycle.” 

Following the collision, the actor suffered critical injuries and was later airlifted to Albany Medical  Center in Albany, New York. Later on, he was pronounced dead. 

Biography:

Richard Treat Williams, born in 1951, was an American actor, writer, and aviator who appeared on film, stage, and television. His career spanned over five decades, and was full of accolades that earned him his spot in movies as well as theatre. 

Richard Treat Williams was born in Stamford, Connecticut. Not much is known about his upbringing, but his parents were Marian (née Andrew), an antiques dealer, and Richard Norman Williams, a corporate executive. Although unconfirmed, but Williams was related to the iconic showman Phineas Taylor Barnum of the Barnum & Bailey Circus. Therefore, it can be assumed that he had privileged upbringing.  

Before getting into the foray of acting, he was a high school football coach, and a flight instructor. He made his debut with the thriller Deadly Hero in 1975, and then went on to star in films and TV shows like ‘Hair’, and ‘Everwood’.  

Wrap Up:

Throughout his career, Williams won several accolades like a Drama League Award for his work in the Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim’s Follies, along with several Emmy and Golden Globe awards for his work. His death was unexpected and is being mourned by his colleagues as well as the world.  

Everwood alum Emily VanCamp posted on Instagram,

The many times we worked together- always wonderful and I was always excited for the next time. Sending all my love to your family Treat. Fly high my friend.”
