Moneyball author Michael Lewis is mourning the tragic loss of his 19-year-old daughter, Dixie Lewis.
“We loved her so much and are in a kind of pain none of us has experienced,” Lewis said in a statement. “She loved Ross, with whom she died. She loved to live and our hearts are so broken they can’t find the words to describe the feeling. Her mother, Tabitha, and I, and her brother Walker and sister Quinn are going to find ways for her memory to live in her absence.”
According to a California Highway Patrol collision report obtained by E! News, Ross was driving northbound on State Route 89 when his 2014 Ford Fusion entered the southbound lane and struck a Freightliner semi truck head on. Both Ross and Dixie, who was riding passenger, were pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the semi-truck, identified by CHP as a 45-year-old male, suffered minor injuries.
