Venus Williams Reaches Settlement In Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Venus Williams has reached a settlement in the wrongful death suit centered around a fatal car accident, according to court documents. According to court documents obtained by ET, which were filed in Palm Beach County on Thursday, the civil case between the two parties was dismissed with prejudice, and each party is responsible for their own attorney's fees and court costs. Police said Williams, 38, had been cut off by an unknown third driver as she tried to cross a six-lane road near her Florida home, setting off a chain of events that led to the collision. Jerome Barson died 13 days after the crash, and his wife suffered a broken arm and other injuries.
