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,” Ross said on Twitter in the hours after the accident. “She’s in surgery now. We need a miracle.”

Jan Ross passed away on Wednesday, as Ross later noted.


Police continue to investigate the accident. Jan Ross was 55 years old.
