More information is being made public by the Delaware State Police on the incident that occurred on Tuesday and resulted in the loss of Ring of Honor professional wrestler Jay Briscoe and the injury of his two children.
The collision, which occurred east of Laurel, a tiny town in Sussex County, Delaware, claimed the life of the famous person, who was 38 years old. Lillyanne Ternahan, 27 years old and from Frankford, Delaware, passed away.
According to the authorities, both of his children, who are 9 and 12 years old, were sent to the hospital in severe condition.
According to a news statement, Jay was operating a 2015 Silverado 2500 in the eastbound lanes of Laurel Road when he collided with Ternahan’s vehicle, which was also a Silverado, and was going in the westbound lanes.
The car driven by Ternahan allegedly moved over into the middle lane before colliding head-on with the truck driven by Jay, according to the police.
The wrestler was not wearing a seatbelt when the accident occurred, and as a result, he passed away at the site. The second motorist was likewise taken out with fatal injuries.
According to the authorities, it is now unclear whether or not alcohol had a role in the collision.
According to USA Today, Jay and his brother Mark both became involved in ROH wrestling in the year 2002. According to the news site, the two of them eventually became known as the Briscoe Brothers and were among the most successful tag-team duos in the history of ROH.
According to a story from USA Today, the pair was recently honored by being inducted into the first class of the ROH Hall of Fame. This occurred a year ago.
The deceased wrestler continues to get many tributes.
“I am deeply heartbroken to hear of the untimely passing of Jay Briscoe (Jamin Pugh) today. It was a privilege for me to cooperate with him on several occasions. I had a crush on Jay. Jay was so genuine. We were all in it together since Jay’s top priorities in life were his family, especially his wife and children. I feel such a deep loss for his family “Hardy was the author.
According to a tweet posted by Seth Rollins of WWE, he was offered his first contract with ROH after competing against Briscoe.
Rollins described him as a wonderful person who was also a good friend. “He enjoyed the business,” Rollins added. “More importantly than that, he was an utterly doting father and husband,” she said.
