Williams, 37, is under investigation after police ruled her at fault for the car crash that killed 78-year-old Jerome Barson near her Florida residence early June.

It was the first time she was speaking publicly since it emerged that she was being sued by the family of Barson and she initially swerved questions alluding to the tragic accident before eventually, she addressed them, saying: “There are no words to describe how devastating…I’m completely speechless.”

Williams then left the press conference as she struggled to speak through the tears before eventually returning to take more questions, Mirror writes.

The American superstar had addressed the incident on social media saying: “I am devastated and heartbroken by this accident.

“My heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of Jerome Barson and I continue to keep them in my thoughts and prayers.”

Similarly, Williams’ sister, Serena, who’s skipped Wimbledon as a result of her pregnancy, has called the crash near her home in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, an “unfortunate accident”.

Mr Barson, who suffered head injuries in the accident, died two weeks after the car crash on June 22 while his wife survived despite sustaining injuries.
