According to Michigan State Police Lt. Darren Green, Samantha Winchester of Ann Arbor was traveling west in the eastbound lanes of the Detroit-area freeway when she struck a car head-on that was carrying the Moore family. The 23-year-old woman and Jaidyn died at the scene.
Howard Moore’s wife, Jennifer, and daughter, Jaidyn, were killed. Moore suffered third-degree burns but his injuries were not considered life-threatening, and his son, Jerell, had minor injuries.
Wisconsin coach Greg Gard said, “There are no words to describe how devastated we are for Howard and his family. Our basketball program is an extremely close family and we are all grieving. Howard is so much more than a colleague and coach. He and Jen and their children are dear friends to everyone they meet. Their positivity and energy lift up those around them. We will miss Jen and Jaidyn dearly and we will put our arms around Howard and Jerell and the entire family, giving them love and support during this unspeakable time.”
Athletic director Barry Alvarez said, “I’ve known Howard ever since he was a student-athlete at Wisconsin and gotten to know his wonderful family through the years. He has always been an incredible representative of our athletic department and a positive influence on everyone around him. We are truly heart-broken for his family and will be doing everything possible to help him through this tragic time. Our prayers, love and support go out to the Moore and Barnes family.”
