Filed under: Legal MattersVenus Williams

no title

It seemed Venus Williams had gone from at fault to in the clear after video of her fatal car accident had shown she had not illegally entered the intersection.

But the estate of the late Jerome Barson is not giving up its wrongful death lawsuit just yet.

According to TMZ, lawyers have now filed a request for all of the tennis star's phone records to double check she wasn't on her cell just before or during the accident.

They have also asked for copies of any prescriptions for drugs Venus may have taken in the 72 hours before.

Police have already said Venus wasn't distracted by her phone and that drugs and alcohol played no part in the accident. Are the attorneys just grasping at straws?

But on Friday the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department issued a press release, along with security camera footage of the accident, revealing:

"After the initial investigation was conducted, new evidence into the incident was located. Based on the evidence obtained in the ongoing investigation, it has been determined the vehicle driven by Venus Williams lawfully entered the intersection on a circular green traffic signal."

Police also confirmed through that the tennis star was, as she had said, going just 5 mph when the two cars collided. In fact, they say they confirmed BOTH drivers' stories. How??

Venus Williams is finally speaking up about that fatal car accident — probably against the advice of legal counsel.

In case you haven't heard, the tennis star was found at fault for a car accident in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on June 9, in which a 78-year-old man named Jerome Barson was killed.

Jerome's wife Linda Barson, who was also in the car, has reportedly already filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Venus.

Venus Williams will need to lawyer up.

It's not looking good for Venus Williams.

As we previously reported, the tennis star was found to be "at blame" for a June 9 car accident which left the driver with serious injuries and her husband with critical injuries. He passed away in the ICU two weeks later.

According to TMZ, Jerome Barson's wife, Linda, is now suing the 37-year-old for wrongful death.

It's said her husband suffered massive internal bleeding, a fractured spine, and massive internal organ damage before succumbing to his injuries 14 days later on June 22. The surviving victim had a cracked sternum and multiple broken bones after the crash.

In the lawsuit filed by their lawyer, Michael Steinger, it claims Venus failed to yield the right of way after blowing through a red light while driving too fast while distracted. Thus, this reckless driving made the accident unavoidable. Additionally, the impact

Venus Williams 'At Fault' In Fatal Car Crash!

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:
