Venus Williams is being sued after she was involved in a fatal car crash where a 78-year old man died.
Williams is being blamed for the death of the man after she pulled out of an intersection speeding. She ignored a yield sign and drove through a red light. The couple crashed in to the side of the tennis player’s vehicle and sustained serious injuries as a result.
Jerome Barson died two weeks after the incident from massive internal bleeding, a fractured spine and internal organ damage. His wife Linda suffered a cracked sternum and multiple broken bones. The car was crushed, according to reports from TMZ.
Venus’ representatives claimed she was only driving 5 mph and that the light was green.
However, according to police reports Venus was to blame, and Linda has lost her husband whom she was married to for 33 years.
