The Golden Globe-nominated actor passed away on Sunday afternoon when a car ‘cut him off,’ his agent, Barry McPherson, and his devastated family confirmed.
He told People: ‘He was killed this afternoon. He was making a left or a right [and] a car cut him off. I’m just devastated. He was the nicest guy. He was so talented.’
Williams, best known for his roles in Everwood and Hair, was enjoying his weekend mowing the lawn at his $1million Vermont home just hours before the tragedy.
The actor was wearing a helmet when the Honda fatally hit him, police confirmed.
He was married to actress Pam Van Sant, and together they had two children, Gille and Ellie – and often shared his idyllic country life for his fans on social media.
