Jan Ross, the wife of WWE announcing legend Jim Ross, is fighting for her life in an Oklahoma hospital after she was involved in a serious scooter accident Monday night.
In a blog post on his website Wednesday, Jim Ross said his wife “needs a miracle” after she suffered a serious brain injury when her Vespa was hit from behind by another driver. Jan was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
“Monday night at approximately 9:30 pm while I was recording the Ross Report about 30 miles from our home, my wife Jan was riding her Vespa home from the gym when (she) was struck from behind by an automobile driven by a 17 year old young man,” Jim Ross wrote. “Jan suffered a catastrophic brain injury including multiple skull fractures. My little Angel was unfortunately not wearing a helmet which arguably would have prevented the extreme nature of her injuries.
“I will fully admit that there has been no experience in my life that could have prepared me for this life changing week. To see one’s life partner and love of one’s life being kept alive via life support equipment is tragically heartbreaking.”
Jim went on to explain that the swelling in Jan’s brain must subside in order for her to have a chance at survival.
Ross is one of the most beloved figures in WWE history, and he thanked fans for their prayers and support. We hope the Ross family receives some good news in the near future.
