Footage has emerged showing that US tennis star Venus Williams was driving lawfully during a car crash that led to the death of a 78-year-old, police say.

Surveillance video obtained by Palm Beach Gardens police in Florida shows Ms Williams' vehicle entering an intersection on a green traffic signal.

An earlier police report had said Ms Williams was at fault and "violated the right of way of [the other driver]".Ms Williams' lawyer said the fatal crash on 9 June was an accident.

The family of Jerome Barson, the man who died in the collision, have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Ms Williams.

New video evidence has revealed that the Grand Slam champion had the right of way as she entered the intersection of Northlake Boulevard in the city of Palm Beach Gardens, according to the police report.

However as she proceeded, the report says, Ms Williams was forced to brake to avoid a collision with an oncoming vehicle, which delayed her from clearing the junction.

"This updated information, based upon new evidence, is still under investigation," the police statement said.
