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.

Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association is an industry group that covers Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and New Mexico. Previous studies, even one from the federal government, have been unable to find anything conclusive.

Williams has been contacted for comment.

That comes after she faltered during her record-breaking 20th French Open, losing out to 30th-seed Timea Bacsinszky of Switzerland on June 4, five days before the Florida crash. The report says Williams was driving an estimated speed of 5 miles per hour.

She was issued a $116 fine, which was increased to $139 in December due to late payment.

However, Palm Beach Gardens police Maj.

According to Tennis.com, she has a residence in Palm Beach Gardens, where she also trains. She paid a $163 fine after that incident.
