Venus Williams finally met the press after reports surfaced last week of a car accident in June that left a man dead in Florida.
Williams was cleared of any traffic violations but police did say she was at-fault. And now the family who she hit has filed suit against the tennis star.
The 37-year-old beat Elise Mertens then after a few questions from the press, she was asked about the accident. She said she was devasted and left speechless. Then she broke down.
So how did the car accident happen? Here’s one animation (though not official):
Last week, Venus released this statement on facebook: “I am devasted and heartbroken by this accident. My heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of Jerome Barson and I continue to keep them in my thoughts and prayers.”
Venus returns Wednesday when the 5-time champion meets Qiang Wang.
