Williams' boyfriend was driving the car at the time of the crash and was last listed in critical condition.

Richmond Police Officers Richard Johnson and Daquan Walker were last listed in serious, but stable condition.

Richmond Police Chief Gerald Smith said the officers were headed to a burglary in progress call and they had been authorized to run blue lights and a siren.

Williams' family, who said Williams and boyfriend Jeremiah Ruffin were delivering for Door Dash, called for transparency into the crash investigation.
