Venus Williams has no words.

The tennis star broke down during a Wimbledon press conference when asked about the fatal car crash she's being sued for — and it's obvious the tragedy has left her speechless.

Last week, the athlete was found at fault in a car crash that occurred last month — one that left 78-year-old Jerome Barson dead. Officials say Williams impeded oncoming traffic by bowing through a red light, and was speeding while distracted.

When asked about the incident during Monday's presser, the 37-year-old was left completely speechless mid-sentence as she tried to keep from breaking down.

While we're sure she's been advised to refrain from making public statements about the accident, as she's currently being sued for wrongful death, it's clear this situation has left Williams shaken.

Venus Williams has yet to respond.

It's being said Venus Williams was involved in a car accident earlier this month, which led to the death of a 78-year-old man.

According to TMZ, the tennis star was driving in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on June 9 when she drove her SUV into an intersection as another vehicle was coming. The other driver T-boned Venus' car.

Sadly, the driver's husband, Jerome Barson, suffered a head trauma and was taken to a hospital where he died 14 days later. Mrs. Barson survived the crash, says her attorney Michael Steinger.

Unfortunately for Venus, cops place her to blame for the fatal accident. The police report states, "[Venus] is at fault for violating the right of way of [the other driver]." It also adds that they don't believe the 37-year-old was under influence of drugs or alcohol, nor was there evidence she was distracted by an electronic device.

Interestingly enough, this Williams sister was in Paris a few days before for the French Open, and even posted to Instagram on June 10, a day after the reported accident:

Over the weekend, Serena Williams and Common — who had an intense two-year relationship that ended in 2010 — sparked reconciliation rumors as they both attended a charity event honoring Williams' late sister in Compton on Friday night.

This is a cause near and dear to the athletes' hearts as their sister, Yetunde Price, was murdered in a 2013 drive-by shooting. The center is set to open next month and will help those from the community affected by violence and trauma.

Amazing.

Although the exes left in separate cars and avoided taking photos together, the witness seemed to think something more serious was going on.

But alas, an insider insists the celebs are just friends. Borrrring. LOLz!

We'll keep you updated if anything comes of this!
