"We are still trying to find out what really happened, because the story just don't add up," said Barnes.

Family members believe Williams was driving away from an argument at a nearby gas station.

"We believe he was trying to get away from the incident, trying to avoid conflict, because that's what he did," said Barnes.

The family says Williams was always a safe driver.

"He never drove recklessly. Never had any types of driver accidents or bad records," said Barnes.

Barnes said her family feels for the other families involved.
