The Hartford Courant reports that Berman, 67, and the driver of a second vehicle passed away as the result of the crash. Here's a look at some of the details from the accident being reported by Christine Dempsey and Dave Altimari:

According to the state police, the 2003 Lexus SC 430 driven by Berman and Bertulis' 2003 Ford Escape X were headed east on Sherman Hill Road 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.

ESPN president John Skipper released a statement on Wednesday morning confirming the news and extending condolences to Berman and his family:
