Dixie Lewis and Ross Schultz Killed in Highway 89 Crash

 
Truckee, CA (May 28, 2021) – On Tuesday, 19-year-old Dixie Lewis and 20-year-old Ross Schultz died in a head-on crash on Highway 89.
 
The accident that killed the two Berkeley High graduates happened at about 3:20 p.m.
 
Dixie Lewis was the daughter of bestselling author Michael Lewis and photographer Tabitha Soren. Schultz, on the other hand, was a soccer player and member of Berkeley High’s NCS Championship soccer team, and was attending Cal Poly Pomona.
 
Apparently, their vehicle was northbound on State Route 89, when they crashed with a southbound vehicle of a 45-year-old driver from Fernley, NV.
 
Authorities said alcohol or drug use were not suspected in this accident.
 
“The Berkeley students’ vehicle entered the southbound lane of State Route 89 and struck the other vehicle head on,” Authorities said. “The driver of the southbound vehicle suffered from minor injuries only.”

The Pain of Losing a Loved One in an Accident

 
“We loved her so much and are in a kind of pain none of us has experienced,” Lewis said. “She loved Ross, with whom she died. She loved to live and our hearts are so broken they can’t find the words to describe the feeling. Her mother, Tabitha, and I, and her brother Walker and sister Quinn are going find ways for her memory to live in her absence.”
 
Meanwhile, Schultz’s family posted a Caring Bridge page on Wednesday, writing, “We are saddened to share the news that Ross was taken from us in a fatal car accident yesterday May 25th in the afternoon in Truckee, California. He was with his girlfriend Dixie who also passed away.”
 
Michael Lewis is one of the most celebrated nonfiction writers in America. His work includes “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game,” that was adapted into the 2011 Oscar-nominated movie. He also penned “The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game” (2006) and “The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine” (2010), both of which were adapted into acclaimed movies.
 
Furthermore, Tabiha Soren’s photography included the 2015 exhibition “Fantasy Life,”. It showcased images of 21 baseball players selected for the Oakland A’s 2002 draft class. Additionally, she was also a reporter for MTV News.
