Venus Williams has definitely seen brighter days.

Sources say the tennis star was involved in a car accident a few weeks ago with 78 year old Jerome Barson and his wife, Linda Barson. Unfortnately, due to the accident Barson passed away 14 days later while his wife has been hospitalized, suffering from broken bones.

After the tennis star beat Elise Mertens in Wimbledon’s first round, a press conference followed and, of course, the media hit a nerve by asking about the accident.

“…Completely devastating, speechless. I am just…” Williams responded through tears.
