Dynasdy Williams, driver in DUI crash, involved in school bus crash two months before

The driver

WET PALM BEACH, Fla. - The Contact 5 Investigators have uncovered new details about Dynasdy Williams, the driver charged with DUI after hitting a nine year old girl in The Acreage last month.

NewsChannel 5 learned it wasn’t the first time Williams had been suspected of driving under the influence while getting into a crash.  It was the second time in less than two months.

Dynasdy Williams was employed by Palm Beach County Public Schools as a temporary bus driver.

The Contact 5 Investigators discovered just two months before hitting the young girl, Williams rear ended another driver with her school bus.

Back on January 15, Nova Jean Ballard said she was idling at a red light when Williams crashed into the back of her van with a school bus.

“I looked back at the light and wham, that’s how fast she got to me,” said Ballard.

Ballard said the school district paid to fix her van but she has been left with an unanswered question ever since.

“I told the lady officer, I said ‘I really smelled something on her breath’,” said Ballard. 

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office report shows alcohol was not suspected in the crash and Williams was not given a Breathalyzer. But she was taken for a private alcohol test after the crash as part of the policy at Palm Beach County Public Schools.  The results are unknown but according to a document obtained by the Contact 5 Investigators, it shows Dynasdy Williams’s signature acknowledging her blood alcohol was at least a .02 or higher.

District officials would not confirm the document.  Williams was fired a few days after the crash.

The Contact 5 Investigators asked Dynasdy Williams about the allegations.

“Um, I don’t know about that,” said Williams. “But I know the roads were wet and I rear ended a lady, that’s it,” she said.  When asked if she was under the influence, Williams stated, “Well, you know you can figure that out on your own.”

A spokesperson with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said they’re looking into why the Deputy did not think alcohol was a factor.
