Venus Williams has finally reached a settlement with the family of the man who died in the Florida car accident she has last year. Based on the court documents filed in Palm Beach County, Jerome Barson’s estate and Serena reached an agreement last week. It is unclear how much money was involved, but there was a financial settlement that will cover certain expenses.

According to the TMZ, “Both sides are paying their own attorneys’ fees in the wrongful death suit. TMZ Sports obtained surveillance video showing the brutal accident. Jerome’s wife was driving and he was the passenger in the sedan that T-boned Venus as she drove through a busy Palm Beach Garden intersection ins 2017.”

Venus was cleared of criminal charges after cops determined she was “caught in the middle” of the intersection when her light turned red. At least it is all over now.
