Venus Williams and Second Driver Won't Be Charged in Deadly Car Crash

Venus Williams won't be charged over crash which left elderly man dead

After the incident, Williams told police she had entered the six-lane intersection on a green light but had been forced to stop midpoint by traffic ahead of her.

They found that neither Barson nor Williams had violated the other's right of way.

Authorities have ruled that Venus Williams will not face any criminal charges after she was involved in a fatal vehicle crash near her Florida home in June of this year, it has been reported.

Jerome Barson, 78, was a passenger in a 2016 Hyundai Accent driven by his wife, Linda Barson, 68. Barson's husband, Jerome, died after he suffered spleen lacerations, pelvic fractures and spinal fractures in the accident. "Two people were transported to St Mary's Medical Center, for injuries sustained in the crash, one of whom later died on June 22nd, 2017".

Williams, 37, was not injured, the Sun Sentinel reported.

Apple will put an EKG reader on Apple Watch (I doubt it)
As with all things in development at Apple, there's no guarantee the company will ever follow this reported project to fruition. But they only monitor the heart's activity for short periods, limiting their ability to spot potential abnormalities.

As NPR's Colin Dwyer stated, authorities initially suggested that Williams had run a red light before the collision, and body camera footage later revealed that the officer on the scene "told Williams he'd say she was at fault" before adding that he didn't feel comfortable "writing a citation when I'm not 100 percent sure, and I'm not 100 percent sure in this case".

Barson's family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Williams.

"I was caught in the middle. I never saw that vehicle coming", Williams had told an officer at the scene.

The Barson family attorney Michael Steinger, said Dowling's conclusion are wrong.

"A previous police report said that Williams was being held responsible for the accident, with a portion of the report stating, "[Venus] is at fault for violating the right of way of [the other driver]".

The fallout heavily contrasts with the friendly relations between US President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping.

"The report is further inaccurate because the video surveillance does no indicated the color of Ms. Williams' light and does not support the police department's conclusion", Steinger continued.

Weeks after the crash Williams competed at Wimbledon, losing in the finals to Garbine Muguruza.

Venus broke down when asked about the accident during a press conference.

The seven-time Grand Slam title victor has on-court earnings of almost $40 million and she owns her own clothing line and a small percentage of the Miami Dolphins.
