The Williamsons Involved In Bus Accident

WilliamsonbusWELEETKA, Okla. – (January 31, 2017) – Multi-award winning mixed group The Williamsons were involved in a bus accident this past weekend. After singing at a church in Tippecanoe, Indiana on Sunday, January 29, 2017, The Williamsons were heading back to Nashville on Interstate 65 before being involved in the accident.

Despite the roads being mostly clear after a recent snow shower, about 30 miles north of Louisville, Kentucky, a Chevrolet Impala hit some black ice and spun around in the middle of the highway. When it first happened, an 18 wheeler in front of them blocked their view. He was able to move over into the other lane, but The Williamsons’ bus was not able to change lanes due to another truck directly beside them. They weren’t driving very fast, but still were not able to get the bus totally shut down because of the slick road conditions. As a result, the group’s bus broadsided the car and shoved it about 40 feet down the highway.

Group manager, Donnie Williamson stated, “No one seemed to be hurt, praise the Lord! A man in the car was taken to the hospital, but it appeared that he was just shaken up. The driver had a bump on his head but didn’t even go to the hospital. No one on the bus suffered any injury. God is so good and his protective hand was on us.”

The impact shoved the frame of the bus inward a bit, and the door was unable to be opened. They were able to continue driving the bus to a repair shop in Springfield, Tennessee, at least getting that much of the damage repaired. The group is currently heading back to their home in Oklahoma. They are requesting that all of their friends keep them in prayer that they will make the right decisions on how to proceed with getting the rest of the repairs completed.

Absolutely Gospel Music
Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as SoGospelNews.com, the site was birthed from an email discussion group by the same name. The SoGospelNews email discussion list was created by the Unthanks after the Singing News shut down its extremely popular discussion list. SoGospelNews started as a simple webpage listing artists, fans, individuals, etc. that were avid supporters of the newly formed SoGospelNews talk list. The site eventually took on printing news for Southern Gospel artists, and eventually took on reviewing the latest recordings from both signed and independent artists within the small genre. SoGospelNews became the most viewed Southern Gospel website on the Internet with over 4,000,000 hits per month.

The Unthank family are now involved in the site, as well as the addition of over two dozen staff writers. The website is based out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In April 2010, SoGospelNews changed its name to AbsolutelyGospel.com. The name change allows them to cover news items of not only Southern Gospel, but also Country Gospel, Inspirational, and Black Gospel.

On January 5, 2011, Susan Unthank passed away, leaving the website in control of Deon, their son, Chris, and their daughter Amy.
