In the video, Venus (in the black SUV) enters the intersection when the light is green, then has to stop abruptly when a auto coming the opposite direction turns left in front of her.

Williams then continued straight through the intersection "in accordance" with the law, the statement said.

Williams was pulling forward through the intersection when Linda Barson's light turned green and she entered the intersection, colliding with Williams' SUV.

'The front end of Barson's vehicle collided with the right front of William's vehicle. Linda's husband, Jerome Barsons, 78, was hospitalized and died on June 22, which was Linda's 68th birthday.

According to media reports, Williams requested the family stop its examination of the two vehicles involved in the crash, with her attorney arguing they should not be examined for evidence and that no data should be taken from them.

He said police have not made a final determination of fault in the investigation. A data download of the Toyota could provide the same information for Williams' vehicle, which is being stored at a West Palm Beach, Fla., tow yard along with the Hyundai.

However, in an updated statement released on Friday, the police said the earlier statement was based on eyewitness report which said Venus ran a red light.

Linda Barson said Williams had "suddenly darted" in front of her and she hadn't had time to stop. She was forced to slow down as the vehicle in front of her turned.

The crash report stated that when Williams was able to drive forward, she stepped into the right of way of an oncoming vehicle, causing the deadly crash.

Now, Palm Beach Gardens police say the investigation is ongoing and it is unclear who is at fault.

Williams, who is world number 11, overcame her opponent 7-6 (7/3) 6-4 on Court One.

Williams, 37, was not hurt and she was not charged with an offence.

"I am devastated and heartbroken by this accident", her post read.

"She remains deeply saddened by the loss suffered by the Barson family and continues to keep them in her thoughts and prayers", Cunningham said.

Ms Williams won her third-round match at the Wimbledon tournament in England on Friday.

But the tennis pro, who broke down crying in a press conference while talking about the crash on Monday, has now been vindicated by the footage.
