Porn Star Bobby Williams Dies in Single Car Accident

Porn star Bobby Williams, whose real name was Peter L. Rigali, died early Sunday morning in a single car accident in Holyoke, Massachusetts.

Authorities say Williams was the driver and lone occupant of the car when he apparently lost control and crashed around 1 a.m. The vehicle is believed to have veered off the right side of the road, slid sideways, hit the guardrail, launched over it and sheared a utility pole before landing upside down in a tree.

Reports say Williams was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. It is believed he was not wearing a seatbelt.

According to the Associated Press, an autopsy has been scheduled to try and determine what may have caused Williams to lose control of the car. As of Tuesday morning, the accident remains under investigation.

Williams was known for his boyish charm and piercing green eyes. He made his porn debut in 2003 and appeared in over 40 adult films during the course of his five year career. He was 31 years old.

      “The vehicle is believed to have veered off the right side of the road, slid sideways, hit the guardrail, launched over it and sheared a utility pole before landing upside down in a tree”. Maybe they should do an inspection of the vehicle to check for mechanical problems as well.

      Sad. But sounds like drugs and/or alcohol was involved.

      I still do not understand why it is OK to publish a porn performer’s real name just because they have died.
      Porn stars have chosen to have porn names for a reason.
      What’s the logic? They are dead so it doesn’t matter any more?

      @sfbeast: Why would you say that? Because he was an adult film performer? Maybe he just fell asleep? Maybe he had a blowout? Maybe an animal ran across the road and he swerved to avoid hitting it? There are any number of possible reasons this happened. That you would quickly blame drugs or alcohol is distasteful.

      @Caine:

      Well actually it is- legally the dead have no expectation of privacy

      @Caine: Just like they would print the real name of any other performer who worked under a stage name, why not recognize the real person who died and not just the character they created.

      When Gaga passes on, they will print her real name. Likewise Eminem, Jay-Z and the rest.

      “Accident”. Hmmm….

      I’m just saying, there’s a reason police reports prefer to use the word collision.

      Oh, no. : [

      I loved his work. Impish/boyishly naughty charm was a perfect way of describing his energy on camera. And so young. Damn shame.
