Venus Williams Reaches Settlement in 2017 Fatal Car Crash

Venus Williams has finally reached a settlement in the lawsuit filed against her after she was involved in a fatal car crash back in June 2017.

Back in 2017, the 38-year-old tennis star was involved in a car accident in Florida when a car crashed into her. The driver’s husband, a 78-year-old man, suffered a traumatic head injury and died in the hospital two weeks later. The driver suffered several broken bones.

After an investigation, police found that Venus had “lawfully entered the intersection” and that “no final determination” of who was at fault. Venus was not charged in the accident.

Shortly after the crash, the victim’s family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Venus.

Just last week, Venus and the family reached an agreement, according to court documents obtained by TMZ – which do not disclose the amount settled, but reports that it will cover a number of expenses following the crash.
