Venus Williams speaks for first time since fatal vehicle crash

Now, the family of the victim is looking to sue Williams in a wrongful death case, alleging negligence.

Ms Williams and her sister Serena have dominated the women's game for two decades.

"I'm completely speechless and it's just".

The five-times Wimbledon champion returned shortly afterwards to finish off the compulsory media briefing. "My heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of Jerome Barson and I continue to keep them in my thoughts and prayers", Williams, 37, shared on Facebook.

According to the police report, witnesses told investigators that Williams ran a red light in her 2010 Toyota Sequoia SUV as a auto driven by Linda Barson entered the intersection on a green light at a speed that has not been confirmed.

Williams' publicist confirmed to AP that she is still proceeding with her plans to compete at Wimbledon in London on July 3.

A 78-year-old male named locally as Jerome Barson suffered fatal injuries in the June 9 collision, which police believe Williams was at fault for.

"I have no idea what she must be feeling on the inside", Wilander said of Williams.

On Friday, Williams broke her silence on the auto crash that occured on June 9 in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The Times reports that neither driver was suspected of driving under the influence or distracted by electronics when the accident occurred.

The family of the man who was killed in a auto crash with Venus Williams announced on Friday that they will be filing a lawsuit against the tennis legend.

Williams told police she stopped in the median break when traffic forced her to stop, the police report said.

Williams had to walk out of a press conference today after her first-round win over Elise Mertens at Wimbledon. Williams was driving to the intersection when the green light turned red and was stuck, blocking the way due to traffic.
