The wife and daughter of University of Wisconsin assistant basketball coach Howard Moore were killed in a head-on collision Saturday in Michigan.
Moore’s wife, Jennifer, and daughter, Jaidyn, died. Moore and his son, Jerrell, survived. The severity of their injuries remains unclear.
Wisconsin head coach Greg Gard planned to fly to Michigan on Saturday to be with the Moore family.
According to reports, a vehicle driven by a 23-year-old woman was going the wrong way early Saturday and caused a multiple-vehicle crash. A third vehicle was involved, but the driver of that vehicle was treated for minor injuries.
Moore played at Wisconsin from 1990-1995 for three coaches – Steve Yoder, Stu Jackson and Stan Van Gundy.
