Are you using the latest Mac with the touch bar? You may want to try the below:
1) Select "Always Use High Performance Graphics" for "VM->Settings->Display->Battery Life"
2) If the issue still persists, add config option(.vmx file entry) mks.enableGLBasicRenderer = "FALSE"
In the Fusion Preview section of the forum there was a mention that beta 6 solves issues in regards to crashing.
