Williams was at a busy intersection in Palm Beach Gardens a few weeks ago when her car was T-boned by another vehicle that had right of way, according to police reports.
A passenger in the second vehicle, 78-year-old Jerome Barson, was sent to the ICU with head injuries from the accident and died three weeks later due to those injuries.
Barson's wife, who was driving the car, told police that the 37-year-old tennis hero shot out into the intersection, not giving her enough time to slow down, causing the accident that took Barson's life.
According to Williams, she tried to make it through the intersection, but when traffic slowed down she was left stranded in the middle of the road. But cops disagreed. "[Venus] is at fault for violating the right of way of [the other driver]," they said in a statement.
There is no evidence that Williams was drinking or using any substances that might have impaired her judgement, or that she was distracted by an electronic device. As of now, she is expected to play in the Wimbledon final next week.
