PALM BEACH GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - Investigators have announced that no charges will be filed in a deadly crash involving tennis star Venus Williams.

Jerome Barson, 78, died from his injuries sustained in the June 9 accident. Barsonís wife, Linda, was driving a 2016 Hyundai Accent when she T-boned Williamsí Toyota Sequoia in an intersection in Palm Beach Gardens.

Barson died nearly two weeks later.

Williams was not injured in the crash.

Palm Beach Police said neither Williams or Linda Barson will be charged.

Wonderful! One would hope in the future that the authorities/media would stop in their rushes in investigation leaks/judgement to condemn someone before all the evidence has come to light. Yet, given the current state of media and the like all-around in the US, I won't hold my breathe!

An attorney for the Barson family, Michael Steinger, said in a statement Wednesday that they disagree with the police department's findings and will pursue the civil case against Williams.

"Palm Beach Gardens Police Departmentís new report is incorrect -- Ms. Williams clearly violated our client's right of way because our client had a green light, as indicated in each and every police reports issued in this case to date," read the statement, obtained by ABC News. "The report is further inaccurate because the video surveillance does not indicate the color of Ms. Williams light and therefore does not support the police department's conclusion. Despite the flawed police department report The Barsons claims against Ms. Williams are still very much valid, although Ms. Williams will receive no criminal charges we are confident that The Barson civil claims will prevail in court."
