Ross had been providing updates on Jan’s condition ever since learning of her crash on Monday night.
Jan was riding her Vespa home from the gym without a helmet and was hit from behind by a car driven by a 17-year-old. She suffered multiple skull fractures and went into emergency surgery. Ross said they needed “a miracle” for her to survive.
Jan was in critical condition earlier on Wednesday, but Jim shared the sad news later in the evening. TMZ says she was 55 years old.
