Venus Willaims flouted numerous traffic laws as she sped through an intersection and caused a crash that resulted in horrendous injuries to a married couple, killing the husband … this according to a new wrongful death lawsuit.

Venus broke the law on June 9 by entering an intersection in Palm Beach County, and she failed to yield the right of way, blew through a red light, drove too fast while distracted, and recklessly created a situation where the accident was unavoidable.

78-year-old Jerome Barson, a passenger in the car, died 14 days after the accident. Barson’s wife, Linda, who was driving the Hyundai, was severely injured.  According to the suit, the impact was so severe their car was “crushed, the front windshield shattered, the airbags deployed, there was crush damage to the rear on the driver’s side, and the back window was shattered.
