    Accident scene: Williams was hit on the tracks over Roxboro Road near East Paces Ferry


    According to police, Williams and a friend were shooting an exercise video near the train tracks in Buckhead when disaster struck.

    Investigators say the buff 30-year-old trainer was jumping rope while his companion was in charge of the camera, reported 11Alive.

    While Williams was not on the tracks over Roxboro Road near East Paces Ferry, he apparently underestimated the width of the oncoming train, which ended up sideswiping him.

    The videographer escaped injury but was knocked off his feet by the impact.

    The 30-year-old Atlanta resident is survived by his 6-year-old daughter and his girlfriend.

    Williams' friends and loved ones took to Twitter and Instagram to express their heartbreak..................

    When I look at train tracks it seems like they are from the Matrix

    They are only about 3 feet wide, but you get in a train and there is an aisle, 2 seats on one side and 3 on the other :dontknow: :huh:

    These guys should learn force perspective.
    You can be a safe 10 feet away and make it look daring and awesome.

    That's who I thought this thread was about. What is this, a trend now? They don't get permission ahead of time and just try to steal shots for their videos and pay the ultimate price.

    All of these guys remind me of Jim Jupiter from Married with Children. He was so weakened from healthy living that living unhealthy for a spell killed him. :jj:
