Police Say Venus Williams At Fault In Fatal Car Crash

Venus Williams Was Allegedly Involved In A Deadly Car Crash

Venus Williams was in a auto crash that sent the passenger of the other vehicle to the ICU, where he later died, according to a report from TMZ based on a police report.

According to TMZ Sports, which first reported the story, the driver's 78-year-old husband sustained head trauma in the crash and was taken to a hospital.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 looks massive in scale, per tech demo
These are definitely some impressive plans and it would be incredible if even just most of these find their way to the final game. A surprise reveal of Beyond Good & Evil 2 at Ubisoft's E3 press conference was met by cheers from critics and fans alike.

Venus told police that she had to slow her speed as traffic had become backed up, according to TMZ. "The police report estimates that Ms. Williams was traveling at 5 miles per hour when Mrs. Barson crashed into her. Authorities did not issue Ms. Williams with any citations or traffic violations".

Police said that there's no evidence that Williams, 37, was distracted by a cellphone at the time of the accident. He died in an intensive care unit two weeks after the crash.

Le Pen Elected to Parliament, Pres. Macron Wins Majority
Macron is a pragmatic reformer who believes that France's endemic problems - and, indeed, Europe's - are best solved by consensus. The conservative Republicans and their allies could form a large opposition block, with 125-131 seats.

That led to the collision that ultimately claimed the life of her husband, as her auto struck the front-left corner of Williams' SUV. There is no mention in the report of Williams being cited. Barson's wife is blaming Venus and so are the cops.

According to a police report obtained by the news site, the accident occurred on June 9.

Josh Jackson: Not enough time to work out for Celtics after trade
The Suns , obviously, were thrilled to draft Jackson and it looks like they might have had a hand in swaying him away from Boston. He has the size to in theory play both forward positions, and the length to be a passable defender with some added work.

Williams may now find her hopes of a Wimbledon comeback dashed if charges are pressed. Bustle has reached out to reps for Williams for comment and to the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department, but did not receive a response at the time of publication.
