Police: Venus Williams involved in car crash

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FLA. (AP) - Florida police say tennis star Venus Williams was in a car crash earlier this month.

Palm Beach Gardens police Maj. Paul Rogers confirmed to The Associated Press on Thursday that Williams was involved in a crash on June 9. He said the crash is under investigation but would not give further details or release the accident report.

TMZ cited a police report that says a passenger in the other vehicle later died from his injuries.

Williams' attorney said in a statement Thursday that she expressed "her deepest condolences to the family who lost a loved one."

The attorney, Malcolm Cunningham, says Williams had entered an intersection while the light was green and was going 5 mph when the other vehicle crashed into hers.

Cunningham says Williams was not ticketed or charged.
