Venus settles lawsuit after fatal car crash

Venus Williams has settled a lawsuit with the family of a 78-year-old man killed in a Florida car crash she was involved in last year.

According to Palm Beach court records, the wrongful death case was closed last Friday, though terms of the agreement between the tennis star and the estate of Jerome Barson were not included.

Barson was the passenger in a car being driven by his wife, Linda, in June 2017 as it hit the side of Williams’ sedan after she was forced to stop while trying to get across an intersection.

Barson died nearly two weeks after the crash but neither driver was charged as police said both had right of way. – Eurosport
