Venus Williams has been accused of causing a auto crash in Miami which lead to the death of a 78-year-old man. According to the report Barson's wife was approaching an intersection in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida when Williams moved her SUV into the intersection.

Police did not believe she'd been distracted by a device or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

"The driver of [the Toyota] is at fault for violating the right of way of [the Hyundai]", the report said. There is no mention in the report of Williams being cited.
