Katherine Berman, 67, was killed in a two-car crash near Woodbury, Connecticut. Edward Bertulis, 87, was also killed in the accident, which happened Tuesday afternoon.

"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." Berman left his position as host of ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown and the network's coverage of the NFL draft earlier this year.
