I’m feeling flattering good about my preference to A) give Venus Williams a advantage of a doubt and B) trust Venus’s lawyer’s statement. As we discussed previously, Venus Williams was “cited” as being “at fault” in a vital automobile collision down in Florida, where she lives. The collision happened a month ago, and Venus’s SUV was struck by a automobile as she done her approach by an intersection. A newcomer in a other automobile was hospitalized and died dual weeks after a accident. The other motorist – now a widow – sued Venus for prejudicial genocide and done a lot of sound about how Venus should be put on hearing for, like, vehicular killing or something. Venus has been during Wimbledon for some-more than a week, and when she was asked about it in her first-round press conference, she pennyless down in tears.
So, what we knew was that a military publicly announced that Venus was “at fault,” even when her counsel pronounced that no, Venus entered a intersection on a immature light. Well, a camera was rather pointed during that intersection, and wouldn’t we know? Venus entered a intersection on a immature light and a reason she paused, mid-intersection, as a lights were changing was since she was indeed doing accurately what she was ostensible to do, agreeable a right of approach to another automobile creation a spin in front of her. Here’s a video:
With a coming of this video evidence, a Palm Beach Gardens PD have released a new, revised matter that takes behind their initial matter that Venus was during fault:

They’re now saying: “After a initial review was conducted, new justification into a occurrence was located. Based on a justification performed in a ongoing investigation, it has been dynamic a car driven by Venus Williams righteously entered a intersection on a turn immature trade signal.” The military say that a review is ongoing and “it is misleading who is during fault.” we was always taught – righteously or poorly – that a chairman who crashes into another car is always during error to some degree. Venus didn’t strike anybody, nonetheless people were treating her like she was a misfortune motorist and a misfortune chairman in a universe since someone else strike her. What’s engaging is that it unequivocally feels like a military dialect only didn’t even listen to Venus Williams’ statement, that she had a immature light, that she was roving solemnly and carefully by a intersection. They only went forward and announced her to be publicly during fault. That’s not right.
Venus is still during Wimbledon too. She won her third turn on Friday. She faces 19-year-old Croatian actor Ana Konjuh in a fourth round.
