Treat Williams’ cause of death has been revealed after the actor’s sudden death at the age of 71.
The Hollywood legend died back in June after colliding with an SUV while riding his motorbike near his home in Vermont. According to the reports, Williams was cut off by 35-year-old Ryan Koss and had no time to stop or avoid the crash.
The New York’s Medical Examiner’s Office now confirmed that the actor died from severe trauma and blood loss – both a result of the June 12 collision.
“The Medical Examiner’s Office in New York determined that Mr. Williams died of severe trauma and blood loss as a result of the crash,” the statement read.
“Mr. Williams suffered critical injuries in the crash and subsequently was pronounced dead at Albany Medical Center in Albany, New York.”
It was since the devastating crash also revealed that Koss faces charges of grossly negligent operation resulting in death and that he was already processed and released after turning himself in.
The tragic news comes shortly after Pam Van Sant, the late actor’s wife, broke her silence and paid her husband a tribute.
“We’re doing as well as we can. We’re very sad, but we’re a strong family and we’ll carry on,” she told DailyMail.com.
“It’s a beautiful thing how everybody’s reached out.”
In an update, the grieving widow added: “The kids and I are grateful for the outpouring of love and support from our local community and from fans and colleagues around the world.
“We will continue to live each day to the fullest with compassion for others in honor of my husband, our beloved Treat, and the kids will carry on his legacy of joy and craftsmanship in their artistic careers.”
