American tennis professional Venus Williams was given a cleanchit in connection with the Florida fatal car crash that killed a person in June, the police said on Thursday.

"Based upon this investigation and relevant Florida State Statutes, no charges will be filed in this case", the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department said as media reports suggest.

On June 9, Williams was involved in a car collision with Jerome Barson and his wife near Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

The 78-year-old man died 13 days after the accident while undergoing treatment.

After his death, the Barson family filed a wrongful death suit against Williams.

Police had initially said Williams was being held responsible for "violating the right of way of the other driver."

However, the final report found that neither Williams nor the Barsons had violated the rule and no charges would be filed in the car collision.
