It’s being said Venus Williams was involved in a car accident earlier this month, which led to the death of a 78-year-old man. According to TMZ, the tennis star was driving in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on June 9 when she drove her SUV into an intersection as another vehicle was coming. The other driver T-boned Venus’ car. Sadly, the driver’s husband, Jerome Barson, suffered a head trauma and was taken to a hospital where he died 14 days later. Mrs. Barson survived the crash, says her attorney Michael Steinger.

The police report states, “[Venus] is at fault for violating the right of way of [the other driver].” It also adds that they don’t believe the 37-year-old was under influence of drugs or alcohol, nor was there evidence she was distracted by an electronic device. Interestingly enough, this Williams sister was in Paris a few days before for the French Open, and even posted to Instagram on June 10, a day after the reported accident: Au revoir Paris!
