Howe, 69, lived in Calabasas, Calif., and was driving her Lexus when she collided with a Toyota Prius that had slowed down, and the reality then rear-ended her Lexus with his Cadillac Escalade, causing Howe’s car to plow into oncoming traffic.
The former Olympian, 65, issued a statement following the accident, saying, “My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident. It is a devastating tragedy and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible.” h/t yahoo!
