DeKalb senior citizen killed in chain-reaction 4-vehicle wreck

A 68-year-old Lithonia man died in a wreck that also injured three others Friday in DeKalb County.

A report released Tuesday identifies the victim as Glenn E. Williams, who was ejected from his 1999 Suzuki Vitara in a chain-reaction wreck with three other vehicles.

It happened around 7:30 p.m. on Covington Highway near Hillvale Road. The wreck apparently occurred when another vehicle suddenly changed lanes and hit another car, which then hit Williams’, the report suggests.

Police have announced no charges.
