No one outside of the couple knows what Alabama sports reporter Natalie Pierre Williams and her husband Chasten Leigh Williams were arguing about, but whatever it was may have led Natalie, 26, to drive off the road.

When her husband realized no one was hurt in the minor car accident, he says he walked away, given their argument. But what happened next was much worse than the initial accident. According to the NY Daily News, Alabama authorities now believe Natalie deliberately set the car on fire while still inside.


The NY Daily News reports: 

Surveillance video from a nearby convenience store shows Williams buying a gallon of gasoline, a two-gallon gas container and a wand-style lighter moments before the fire was discovered.

The melted items were found in or around her vehicle after the fiery wreck, authorities said.

Police say Williams caused the blaze herself and authorities will not be pursuing any criminal charges.

Neither she or her husband were hurt in the initial small crash, which caused minor front-end damage.

It’s still unclear what caused Williams to steer away from the road, police said.

Williams was placed on a ventilator in critical condition. She has reportedly suffered burns on 75 percent of her body from the accident, which occurred on her birthday.

The Hoover Police and Fire Departments released a statement Wednesday saying, “It is the hope of the Hoover Police and Fire Department that the victim is able to have a full recovery. We urge everyone to please offer encouragement and support, not judgment, to this family in their time of need.”
