Venus Williams Was Allegedly Involved In A Deadly Car Crash

Tennis star Venus Williams is being blamed for a fatal auto crash on June 9 that left the other driver a widow, cops said.

The man, later identified as Jerome Barson, suffered head trauma from the collision and was rushed to the hospital, where he died two weeks later. The victim, Jerome Barson, was in a auto with his wife (who was driving) in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., when suddenly she approached an intersection, as Williams reportedly collided with their vehicle in her SUV.

According to the report, Linda Barson told police she was traveling west in the right lane and approaching an intersection, slowing for a traffic light. The other driver says there was no time to stop and she T-boned Venus' vehicle.

Police reports seen by United States website TMZ said five-time Wimbledon champ Venus "violated" Linda's right of way in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The website TMZ reported that Williams was found at fault, but it was unclear if she was cited.

The cops ultimately came out against Williams, according to the report. Barson's wife was also hospitalized but survived.
