Venus Williams was in a car accident that sent the passenger of the other car to the ICU where he later died, according to a report from TMZ, based on a police report.
According to TMZ, the driver of the other car told police she was approaching an intersection when Williams’ SUV entered the intersection, causing the other car to T-bone Williams’ vehicle.
Williams reportedly told police she was trying to get through the intersection but had to slow down because of traffic, leaving her car exposed.
According to TMZ, the driver claimed she had no time to stop. While the other driver reportedly suffered broken bones, she was ok, but her 78-year-old husband was taken to the ICU with head trauma and died 14 days later.
TMZ reports that police said Williams is to blame for the accident, with the police report saying, “[Venus] is at fault for violating the right of way of [the other driver].”
According to TMZ, there is no evidence Williams was driving under the influence or drugs or alcohol or driving distracted.
Williams’ agent did not immediately respond to request for comment from Business Insider.
