Wow, a Porsche.
This bearded gentleman must have had a really good job to pay for that.
He looks like a doctor to me.
Behind the wheel of a Porsche Cayenne, Ryan B. Williams attempted to evade police zooming westbound on Route 299 in the Town of Lloyd just after 7:30 p.m. on July 1, 2018.
He pushed the speedometer to 128 mph before careening off the side of another vehicle. The Porsche crossed into the eastbound lane, still traveling 112 mph, and Williams struck a Ford pickup truck head-on.
Danielle M. Pecoraro, a 39-year-old New Paltz woman and mother, was driving the Ford. She died, the Ulster County coroner later said, of blunt force trauma.
Williams on Tuesday was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison by Judge Donald Williams, after the 29-year-old in April was found guilty of murder, aggravated vehicular homicide and other charges.
Williams was charged with second-degree murder, depraved indifference to human life, Ulster County Assistant District Attorney Joey Drillings said, in part due to the speed at which he was driving, which was revealed in the collision reconstruction report.
