Kathy Berman, wife of longtime ESPN anchor Chris Berman, died in a car crash Tuesday afternoon. She was 67.
According to Connecticut state police, Berman was driving on Route 64 in Woodbury, and collided with another driver, who was also killed in the crash.
This is a devastating tragedy and difficult to comprehend, ESPN President John Skipper said in a statement. Chris is beloved by all his ESPN colleagues and for good reason: He has a huge heart and has given so much to so many over the years. We know how much his family means to him and all we can do at a moment like this is give him the love and support he will surely need at this hour. Our thoughts and prayers are with Chris, Meredith, Doug and the entire family.
