No one ever wants to be the cause of a fatal accident. Those charges are being considered against Venus Williams. This is the conclusion reached by a Palm Gardens Florida police officer after her accident with the Barson family was caught on camera. The officer went on to say it appeared the actions of a third driver left Williams in a bad spot.
On June 9th 2017 tennis star athlete Venus Williams was driving straight on a green light as she exited her neighborhood. A car turning left cut her off and forced her to stop mid way as she crossed a busy 6 lane intersection. When Ms. Williams started to move again her green light had turned to red and the car driven by Linda Barson had turned green and her Hyundai plowed into Williams Toyota Sequoia SUV.
Officer David Dowling, the lead investigator explained to Ms. Willaims why he believes she was at fault. “You had a green light so you had the right of way when you started to exit but when you got stuck in the middle of the intersection you lost that right of way. Linda Barson now had a green light and had no way of knowing you were going to come across.” Ms. Williams asked officer Dowling “In a situation like that what do you do because you can’t back up.” “Exactly” Dowling replied. “You just got stuck in a bad situation there. I would just let the insurance companies work it out. I am not going to give you a citation.”
