Venus Williams Becomes Visibly Emotional When Asked About Deadly Car Accident (Video)

Venus Williams became very emotional during her press conference at Wimbledon after defeating Elise Mertens on Monday (July 3) at the London, England-based competition.

The 37-year-old tennis star was asked about killing 78-year-old Jerome Barson in a car accident last month in Florida.

“There are really no words to describe, like, how devastating and — yeah. I’m completely speechless. It’s just …” Venus said during the press conference before choking back tears. Watch the moment below.

The family of the victim has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Venus for negligence.
