Police in Florida say tennis star Venus Williams was at fault for a auto crash June 9 that led to the death of the passenger in the other vehicle two weeks later.

Barson suffered head trauma and spent the next two weeks in ICU before succumbing to his injuries.

"What we can say is that Palm Beach Gardens Police Department is now conducting an investigation into a traffic crash involving Venus Williams", Rogers said.

Williams, according to the report, told police she was stopped in the median of the intersection because of other traffic. Williams claims her SUV was in the intersection after traffic in front of her had slowed to a halt. Bustle has reached out to reps for Williams for comment and to the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department, but did not receive a response at the time of publication.

The cops ultimately came out against Williams, according to the report.
