Venus Williams Breaks Down In Press Conference After Questioned About Fatal Car Crash Lawsuit

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.

Watch the clip (below) to see the athlete’s emotional moment.
