Tennis star Venus Williams has reached a settlement in the wrongful death suit centered around a fatal car accident, according to court documents.
The accident, in which the other driver’s Hyundai Accent crashed into Williams’ Toyota Sequoia, resulted in the death of Jerome Barson two weeks later. His wife, Linda, was driving and was injured when the crash happened at an intersection in Palm Beach Gardens.
Court filings from last week show that the case was dismissed with prejudice after a settlement was reached between Williams and Barson’s estate, but the settlement amount was not listed.
No charges were filed against the tennis star and a second driver over the crash in June 2017, Florida authorities said.
An investigation supported by video surveillance showed Williams did not violate the other driver’s right of way, the Palm Beach Gardens Police said in an investigative report obtained by CNN affiliate WPBF.
“Based upon this investigation and relevant Florida state statutes, no charges will be filed in this case,” the report said.
