Prosecutors say Williams was intoxicated on Nov. 16, 2016, when his Lexus ran off Highway 91 near Westside School District, overcorrected, and struck head-on a Chevy Malibu driven by Megan Holt, 26, of Cash.

Holt was killed in the crash.

In addition to prison time, the judge also ordered Williams to pay court costs and fines.
