Venus Williams Breaks Down In Tears When Asked About Fatal Car Crash

In a post-match press conference following her first round victory over Elise Mertens at Wimbledon, Venus Williams was asked about the car crash she was involved in that resulted in the death of a passenger in the other vehicle. Williams attempted to answer the question, before being overcome by emotion. She eventually left the podium without taking any more questions.

Last week, police determined that Williams was at fault in the June 9 accident that led to the death of 78-year-old Jerome Barson. Williams has not been charged with any crime in relation to the crash.
