Field's 12-year-old daughter was flown to Children's Hospital in serious condition.
A passenger in Williams' car, Joshua Stokes, received minor injuries and was taken by ambulance to UAB hospital.
Williams was treated and released from UAB and arrested on three counts of reckless murder and one count of first-degree assault, authorities said.
