UPDATE: Driver identified as Todd Leopold, in the accident which killed Anthony Williams (Rocklin, CA)

Update – May 14, 2022: Todd Leopold, a Placer County official, has announced that he was driver involved in the accident that resulted in the death of Anthony Williams on March 19th, 2022. Rocklin Police said earlier this week that they will not release the police report on the accident investigation to the public citing California’s law involving vehicle crashes. An advocate group has been working with the Williams’ family, accusing police of not being transparent during the investigation and questioned why Leopold had not been identified.

Leopold has released the following statement: “My words and emotions cannot adequately express my profound grief and sadness. I am heartbroken for the loss of this young man and extend my sincere condolences to Mr. Williams’ family, friends, and all of those impacted by this tragic accident”. Mr. Leopold also stated “Unfortunately, I could not comment on the pending investigation and certainly did not want to be perceived, in any way, as attempting to influence the outcome of the Rocklin Police Department’s investigation…at all times, I balance my respect for the investigative process while also providing transparency to you, our valued staff, as well as to our valued public.”

Our source for this tragic accident, KCRA 3, submitted a request for public records to retrieve the accident report but was denied. KCRA 3 announced that a Williams family attorney has received a copy of the 90-page investigative report.

Original Story from March 21, 2022 – Authorities identified Anthony Williams, a Sacramento Senior, as the basketball player for Inderkum High School who lost his life after getting struck by a vehicle on Saturday in Rocklin.

As per the initial information, the fatal auto-pedestrian crash took place at about 8:30 p.m. on Lonetree Boulevard and Adams Drive in Rocklin. The preliminary investigation revealed that a vehicle struck Anthony Williams for reasons that are yet to be known.
