Surveillance video obtained by Palm Beach Gardens police in Florida shows Ms. Williams' vehicle entering an intersection on a green traffic signal. She had merely slowed down on account of traffic flow and was thus in the central portion when the Barsons' auto struck hers on the side.

After Williams waited for the Altima to pass, according to police, she proceeded north through the intersection.

In a statement, Palm Beach Gardens Police Department said the video then showed Ms. Barson, who was traveling west, collided with the front of Ms. Williams' vehicle.

"It has been determined the vehicle driven by Venus Williams lawfully entered the intersection on a circular green traffic signal", Major Paul Rogers said in a statement.

In court records, Williams' attorney, Kevin Yombor, said the family's lawyers gave Williams less than 24 hours' notice that they would be inspecting and downloading data from the auto on Wednesday.

The family of Jerome Barson, the man who died in the collision, have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Ms. Williams. On Friday, Police spokesman Maj. She has not been cited or charged.

But Radar has obtained surveillance video of the crash and a new police report that indicates Williams, 37, may not be to blame.

Lawyers for the Barson family and Williams agreed to share downloaded information about the crash in the next 72 hours.

Venus Williams has been found not responsible for the accident that killed 78-year-old Jerome Barson in June, police announced on Friday.

During a Friday court hearing, both attorneys allowed data captured from the vehicles' computer systems to be analyzed. "The actions taken by Plaintiff should not occur until. a procedure is in place to ensure that the data of each vehicle is properly collected".

Earlier this week, she broke down in tears when asked about the fatal crash.

"I am devastated and heartbroken by this accident", Williams wrote.

He added that the star "remains deeply saddened by the loss suffered by the Barson family and continues to keep them in her thoughts and prayers".

Williams was not hurt in the crash.

Ms. Williams, the 37-year-old seven-time Grand Slam champion, reportedly told police she did not see the couple's vehicle and she was driving slowly.

"As a result of the crash, a grandfather is now gone forever", the attorney said.
