Police in Florida say tennis star Venus Williams was at fault for a June 9 car crash that led to the death of the passenger in the other vehicle two weeks later.
According to a copy of the police report obtained by ABC, Williams' 2010 Toyota Sequoia SUV darted into an intersection in Palm Beach Gardens, near her residence. The other driver, identified as Linda Barson, said she could not stop her 2016 Hyundai Accent in time and hit Williams' car.
Williams, 37, told investigators she had entered the six-lane intersection on a green light but had been forced to stop midpoint by traffic ahead of her. She said she did not see the Barsons' car when she crossed into their lanes.
According to the police report, Williams was at fault for violating the right of way of the other vehicle.
Williams has not been cited or charged. The police report says she was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
