Jan Ross, wife of legendary former WWE commentator Jim Ross, has died as a result of injuries suffered in a traffic accident earlier this week.
While riding her Vespa en route to a gym near her Oklahoma home, Jan Ross was struck by a car. She was not wearing a helmet, according to Jim, and suffered multiple skull fractures.
My wife Jan, my little angel, was hit while riding her Vespa & has multiple skull fractures. She's in surgery now. We need a miracle.

A Priest gave my wife Jan her last rites tonight. My little Angel is gone. ????????
