In the aftermath of the crash, Williams explained to an officer that a dark-colored car turned left in front of her, trapping her in the intersection when her light turned red and before she was T-boned by the Barsons’ Hyundai. In July Florida police obtained video supporting Williams’ claim that she was doing nothing illegal when the accident occurred.

The Barson family initially sued Williams for allegedly causing the accident and running a red light.
