Who is Annie Williams? Texas woman, 58, crashes car into liquor store trying to run over partner
Annie Williams also injured a bystander after hitting her with the car and caused $25,000 worth of damage to the liquor store
IRVING, TEXAS: A 58-year-old woman was arrested on felony charges of aggravated assault after she drove her car straight into a liquor store, injuring a bystander and crashing into several parked vehicles afterward. It is believed that the entire episode stemmed from a spat with her partner and she actually attempted to run him down when she crashed into the store. The incident took place at 8 pm on June 25, 2021, at the Liquor Depot along North Belt Line Road in Dallas, Irving. Police soon arrived at the location to look into a hit-and-run report.
The incident was caught on video by an eyewitness, which showed the woman, Annie Williams, backing up her black Chrysler SUV and allegedly trying to run down her partner. Instead, she ended up striking another woman who was standing nearby. The woman was reportedly left with a broken ankle and later treated at a hospital. The person recording the incident can be heard expressing in disbelief, "What the f*** just went on?!"

Who is Annie Williams?
Not much information is available on the personal details of Williams at the moment. Following the crash, the Texas female driver smashed into other vehicles that stood in the parking lot. She rear-ended one vehicle with her car and smashed into two other cars, before driving away at high speed.
Soon afterward, a patrol sergeant tried to pull her over but she evaded the police official, leading to a car chase. Eventually, she was nabbed by the police at North Story and Rochelle Roads and taken into custody. The shocking incident was the result of a lover's spat as Williams and her partner were involved in domestic violence prior to the crash. However, after Williams attempted to run him down, the man reportedly left the scene and could not be traced.
While the injured bystander was treated for a fractured ankle, meanwhile, the liquor store sustained damages worth an estimated $25,000. It is unclear whether Williams has been ordered to pay for the damage. She was later slapped with charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, evading arrest, DWI, and criminal mischief, by the Irving Police Department. She was booked into Irving Prison, but according to DailyMail, her name was not listed anymore on the jail roster after June 28.
