警方判其无责不予起诉!七次大满贯得主大威车祸案调查尘埃落定_英语新闻

American tennis player Venus Williams will not be charged over her involvement in a car crash in June that led to the death of a 78-year-old man.

美国网球运动员维纳斯·威廉姆斯六月卷入一场车祸,导致一名78岁的男子身亡,警方最近称将不会对她进行起诉。

Jerome Barson’s family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Williams.

杰罗姆·巴森的家人曾起诉威廉姆斯导致其意外身亡。

Palm Beach Gardens police initially said the 37-year-old was at fault, but footage emerged in July that they said showed her driving lawfully.

棕榈滩花园警局一开始认为威廉姆斯为过错方,但是7月的监控视频显示威廉姆斯当时为“合法驾驶。”

They said on Wednesday: "Based on this investigation and relevant Florida statutes, no charges will be filed."

警方在周三称:“根据此次调查以及佛罗里达州的相关法令,我们不会起诉此次案件的当事人。”

Barson, 78, was a passenger in a car - being driven by his wife Linda - that collided with the SUV Williams was driving. He died 13 days after the accident.

78岁的遇难者巴森当时坐在由妻子驾驶的汽车上,车子撞上了威廉姆斯驾驶的SUV(运动型多用途汽车)。杰罗姆在车祸13天后去世。

What happened?

所以发生了什么?

Williams, a seven-time Grand Slam singles champion, entered the intersection of Northlake Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on 9 June.

七次大满贯单打冠军威廉姆斯在6月9日驶进位于弗罗里达州棕榈滩花园北湖大道的一个十字路口。

According to witness statements in a police report obtained by the US media, Williams’ car darted into the path of the Barsons, and she was unable to clear the junction in time because of traffic jams.

根据美国媒体从警局得到的信息,目击者称威廉姆斯驾驶的汽车冲进帕森斯大道,因为交通堵塞,她不得不停在十字路口。

Police initially believed she was at fault, and an early report said she had "violated the right of way" of Linda Barson.

警方一开始认为威廉姆斯是过错方,早期的报告认为她侵犯了琳达·巴森的“优先通行权。”

But surveillance video showed Williams’ vehicle entering an intersection on a green traffic signal and revealed she had the right of way, according to the police report.

但根据警方最新的报告,监控录像显示威廉姆斯是在绿灯时驶进十字路口的,所以她应当有优先通行权。

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

报告称,威廉姆斯在行驶中为躲避驶来的车辆被迫停车,所以不得不停在十字路口。

As she then began to move forward, a second vehicle - travelling in a different direction - entered the intersection on a green traffic signal, and the two cars collided.

而当威廉姆斯随后提速行驶时,一辆从不同方向驶来的汽车在绿灯时行驶到路口,两辆车最终发生碰撞。
