PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) -- U.S. Open runner-up Venus Williams was uninjured when the car she was riding in crashed west of Palm Beach Gardens over the weekend.
The crash occurred either late Saturday night or early Sunday morning, Palm Beach County Sheriff spokesman Jay Hart said Tuesday. The crash report had not been submitted so details were limited, Hart said.
No further details about the crash were available late Tuesday night. Richard Williams, Venus' father, said his daughter was not hurt.
"She may have been in a minor fender-bender, but I don't believe she was seriously hurt," said Julie Kachner, a spokesperson for Venus Williams.
Williams' half-brother, Richard Williams III, 37, and his wife, Ana, 36, also were in the vehicle. They were treated and released from St. Mary's Medical Center on Sunday, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
Venus Williams, the second-ranked player in the world, shares a home in Palm Beach Gardens with her sister, Serena, the world's No. 1 player. Serena beat Venus in the U.S. Open final earlier this month.
Venus Williams withdrew from the $1.2 million Brazil Open last week, saying she was fatigued. She was the top seed in that event.
Serena Williams was not involved in the crash -- she is playing at the Toyota Princess Cup in Tokyo this week.
