The New York Times has released details of an investigation into whether two Florida State University football players were given preferential treatment by police after a hit-and-run accident this fall.
On October 5, a starting cornerback for the FSU Seminoles, P.J. Williams, was driving with the team's other cornerback, Ronald Darby, along with an unidentified passenger. At 2:37 a.m., Williams crashed into an oncoming vehicle driven by a teenager, totaling both vehicles.
Williams and his passengers then ran off; when Williams eventually returned to the scene, he was issued two relatively minor traffic tickets and not charged with hit-and-run, the Times reports.
