Kathy Berman, 67, and another driver collided and both died in the two-car crash on Tuesday. The other driver, Edward Bertulis of Waterbury, Conn., was 87 years old, according to ESPN.

ESPN President John Skipper released a statement on Wednesday about Berman’s death.

"This is a devastating tragedy and difficult to comprehend," John Skipper, president of ESPN, said in a statement. "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, who joined ESPN in 1979, was at Citi Field for the New York Mets vs. San Francisco Giants game when Kathy died and was notified by the NYPD, according to the New York Post.
