Venus Williams Cleared of Wrongdoing in Fatal Car Crash After Release of New Video

Police said the tennis star "lawfully entered" the intersection.

Venus Williams didn’t break the law during a fatal car crash in Florida last month, although authorities previously said she was at fault. 

A newly released video of the crash by Palm Beach Gardens police shows Williams' 2010 Toyota Sequoia entering an intersection on a six-lane highway while she had the green light.

In the video, Williams pauses before continuing into the intersection before her vehicle is T-boned by a Hyundai. 

The Hyundai was driven by Linda Barson, whose 78-year-old husband, Jerome, later died of his injuries.

Police said the video was obtained from the guard gate of a nearby residential community, according to reports.

“The vehicle driven by Venus Williams lawfully entered the intersection on a circular green traffic signal, and attempted to travel north through the intersection to Ballenisles Drive,” police said in a statement that exonerated the tennis star.

Police initially said Williams was at fault and violated Barson’s right of way during the June 9 accident.

Williams broke down in tears Monday during her first public appearance since the crash before police released the new information. 

“There's no words to describe,” she said. “I'm speechless.”
