Following the shocking death of ESPN legend, Chris Berman's wife Katherine earlier this week, the family has finally broken their silence on the tragedy with a statement.
"We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and sympathy from so many folks we know, and so many others we look forward to knowing," the statement from the family read. "Kathy Berman had a huge heart, and this would have warmed hers beyond belief."
Katherine died on Tuesday afternoon when she crashed her car into another vehicle in front of her. Both cars were completely totaled, with her own being left overturned and off the road. The car she crashed into continuing moving forward, where it slammed into a pole. The drivers in both vehicles died. The other victim has since been identified as Edward Bertulis, an 87 year-old resident of Waterbury.
"All of us need to keep the family of Edward Bertulis in our thoughts and prayers as well," the family's statement continues, before closing off with regards from the family.
Chris Berman is considered a legend among many for his work with ESPN as a sportscaster. Along with his engaging work demeanor, Berman is also well known for his various different catchphrases. Berman was at a Citi Field game when he was told about the accident.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Berman family as they go through this tragedy.
