The pair were found by a construction worker on Friday inside Williams’ crashed 2005 white Acura sedan.

“The car had gone off the construction road, traveled down an embankment and struck a tree. Both airbags deployed,” the release said.

Police said Lanway was arrested twice on charges of domestic violence against Williams. 

Williams had also obtained an order of protection against Lanway, according to police, who described Lanway as an “estranged boyfriend.”
