Jay Briscoe passed away in a reported auto accident

ROH legend Jay Briscoe left the pro wrestling world devastated. The following is the statement from the Delaware Police as reported by PWInsider: “Delaware State Police are investigating a fatal accident in Laurel late yesterday afternoon that resulted in the deaths of two people.

On January 17, 2023, at approximately 5:09 PM, a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was traveling westbound on Laurel Road just west of Goose Nest Road. At the same time, a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 was traveling eastbound on Laurel Road in the same vicinity.

For unknown reasons, the driver of the Silverado 1500 pickup truck was unable to stay in his lane, crossed the center line, and entered the eastbound lane of Laurel Road, directly in the path of the Silverado 2500. This resulted in a head-on collision between the two pickup trucks in the eastbound lane.

The driver of the Silverado 1500, identified as 27-year-old Lillyanne Ternahan of Frankford, Delaware, was wearing a seat belt. The driver of the Silverado 2500, identified as Jamin Pugh, 38, of Laurel, Delaware, was not wearing a seat belt.

Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene. The two passengers in Pugh's pickup truck, identified as his 12-year-old daughter and 9-year-old daughter, were both properly strapped in. Both girls were taken by ambulance to an area hospital and were hospitalized in critical condition.

“On behalf of the @WWENXT community, I would like to express our condolences to the Briscoe family for their loss,” Michaels tweeted. The internet wrestling community took note of WWE's gesture, as many fans termed the tribute "classy."
