Williams was driving her vehicle when Linda and Jerome were in their car crossing an intersection. A driver of another vehicle said that Williams sped into the intersection, a fact that Williams lawyer disputes, according to Sports Illustrated. Williams was going only five miles an hour when she entered the intersection and authorities say no evidence that alcohol, drugs or texting while driving were factors in the accident.
The tennis star could be facing a lawsuit from the Barson family, who will sue Williams and are trying to gather more information about the crash, according to Linda’s attorney who gave an interview to Good Morning America on Friday.
Williams is set to play at Wimbledon in England next week.
