who rear ended who, if it was katherine berman wife of chris berman than i can't be compasionate to them but if other way around then i would be so who rear ended who?

Report indicates Berman rear-ended the other guy, causing his death along with hers.  It is a shame no matter who caused it.  Maybe she had a medical condition, heart attack or something?  and if she knew she had medical issues, then she shouldn't have been driving!  Either way, two are dead and it appears that Mr. Bertulis is innocent and no one is sending best wishes to his family.  He was 87!! and to be taken out by a car accident.  Shame.  

Mr. Bertulis also had a large family who loved him. I would like his life to be mentioned as well.  I understand that Mrs. Berman was married to someone famous, but Mr. Bertulis was famous to his family and friends too.
