Linda Barson, who suffered broken bones and other injuries, told police she slowed for a red light but proceeded when the light turned green.
"The driver of V2 (Barson) advised she proceeded thru the intersection when V1 (Williams) cut across in front of V2, and V2 was unable to avoid crashing into V1," the police report obtained by the Palm Beach Post said.
A witness told police that after the light changed to green, Williams’ 2010 Toyota Sequoia crossed the lanes in front of Barson’s 2016 Hyundai Accent.
Linda Barson’s attorney, Michael Steinger, did not have an immediate comment.
Police say there was no evidence Williams was under the influence of drugs or alcohol or that she had been distracted by an electronic device. The police report said Williams has not been cited or charged.
F. Malcolm Cunningham Jr., Williams’ attorney, issued the following statement:
"Ms. Williams entered the intersection on a green light. The police report estimates that Ms. Williams was traveling at 5 mph when Mrs. Barson crashed into her. Authorities did not issue Ms. Williams with any citations or traffic violations. This is an unfortunate accident and Venus expresses her deepest condolences to the family who lost a loved one."
The Barson family referred questions to attorney Michael Steinger, whose firm did not immediately respond.
According to court records, the family already may be planning a lawsuit. In a petition filed Tuesday on on behalf of Barson’s estate, the only asset listed for Barson is “the expectation of recovery in an action for wrongful death.” It did not list an amount.
Williams was cited in 2013 for driving with a suspended license and paid a $163 fine, Palm Beach County court records show. In 2011, she was cited for failure to provide proof of insurance. She paid a $139 fine.
Barson’s wife has been cited for speeding in Palm Beach County three times between 2004 and 2013, according to court records.
Police said the crash remains under investigation.
