Chris Berman’s Wife Of 33 Years Dies In Car Accident

Kathy Berman

The wife of longtime ESPN broadcaster Chris Berman was one of two people killed in a car accident on Tuesday in Connecticut.

Kathy Berman, 69, was traveling in her Mercedes when she was suddenly struck from behind by a Ford Escape driven by an 89-year-old man. The collision sent Berman’s car down an embankment before it overturned into a small body of water.

“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.”

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Berman family.
