Katherine Berman, wife of long-time ESPN personality Chris Berman, was killed in a two-car crash in Connecticut on Tuesday at the age of 67.
The Hartford Courant received details of the fatal crash from the Connecticut state police.
According to the state police, the 2003 Lexus SC 430 driven by Berman and 2003 Ford Escape X driven by Bertulis were headed east on Sherman Hill Road, about a mile and a half from the Quassy Amusement Park in Middlebury, at the time of the crash. The Lexus — owned by Chris Berman — rear-ended Bertulis’ Ford and continued traveling east, veering off the road to the right.
The Lexus went down a small embankment and overturned in a small body of water, state police said. The Ford also went off the road, striking a utility pole and landing in the middle of the road on its roof.
The police said they are investigating whether Bertulis had a medical emergency just prior to the accident.
