ESPN legend Chris Berman's wife died in a car accident


Katherine Berman, the wife of ESPN's Chris Berman, died in a car accident in Connecticut on Tuesday afternoon, the New York Post reported.

Berman and another driver, Edward Bertulis, died in a two-car crash in Woodbury, Connecticut.  

Chris Berman was one of ESPN's main football correspondents for more than three decades. He had taken a step back from the role after last season's Super Bowl. 

ESPN President John Skipper released a statement on the tragedy. 

"This is a devastating tragedy and difficult to comprehend. 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," the statement read. 

Condolences have poured in on social media.
