ESPN Sports Legend’s Wife Dies in Car Crash
The wife of legendary sports presenter Chris Berman has been killed in a car crash. Katherine Berman, 67, died after crashing her Lexus into a Ford Escape in Connecticut on Tuesday. The 87-year-old driver of the Ford was also killed, according to reports.
The longtime ESPN anchorman and Katherine wed in 1983 and have two kids. Berman was reportedly at a baseball game in New York when he was notified of the crash by police officers. “This is a devastating tragedy and difficult to comprehend,” ESPN president John Skipper says 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.”
