Miami, United States — Tennis star Venus Williams was allegedly “at fault” in a Florida traffic accident that resulted in the death of a 78-year-old man, according to a police report obtained Thursday by AFP.

The accident occurred on June 9 in Palm Beach Gardens, a small city north of Miami.

The driver’s husband suffered a head injury and died two weeks later at the hospital, according to entertainment news site TMZ.

The winner of seven Grand Slam championships was not using her phone and had not taken drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash, police said.
