Treat Williams, a cherished figure in the entertainment industry, met his unfortunate fate in a motorcycle collision on Vermont Route 30, just north of Morse Hill Road in Dorset, Vermont. He was 71 years old at the time of the accident. Driving a 1986 Honda motorcycle, Williams collided with a Honda Element driven by Ryan Koss, aged 35. Initial investigations indicate that Koss signaled a left turn before entering a parking lot and inadvertently crossing paths with the bike. Despite Williams’ efforts to avoid the collision, he was thrown off his motorcycle. He was immediately airlifted to Albany Medical Center in Albany for medical attention but, tragically, succumbed to his injuries.

Barry McPherson, Treat’s agent, expressed profound grief in a statement: “Sadly, Treat was killed in a motorcycle crash tonight. It is a tragedy.”

Ryan Koss, the driver of the Honda Element, was found to be grossly negligent in the operation of the vehicle leading to Williams’ death.

He released a heartfelt statement expressing his devastation and offering sincere condolences to the actor’s family.

Treat Williams’ acting career was a testament to his exceptional talent and versatility. He achieved prominence with significant roles such as John Travolta’s understudy for Danny Zuko in “Grease” and his involvement in Milos Forman’s “Hair” adaptation in 1979.

Edgar Hoover.

Ryan Koss, having been charged with grossly negligent operation leading to Williams’ death, voluntarily cooperated with the authorities and is scheduled for arraignment on September 25.
