Chicago CEO and Wife Dead in Early Morning Wrong-Way Crash on Highway 101
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (October 3, 2019) – A husband and wife were among the four people killed in a wrong-way crash early Thursday morning on Highway 101 in San Francisco Bay Area.
Judson Bergman, 62, and Mary Miller, 57, were riding in a taxi around 12:30 a.m. A wrong-way Volkswagen sedan, driven by an intoxicated driver, then struck the taxi head-on.
As a result, Bergman and Miller died at the scene. The taxi cab driver, 42-year-old Berkant Ahmed of San Mateo, and the wrong-way driver, 34-year-old Emilie Ross of Hillsborough, were also killed in the crash.
Bergman was the chairman and CEO of Envestnet, Inc., a Chicago-based financial services company.
Miller was the founder of Hanover Hill Wealth Advisors in Chicago, according to a report.
It was the second marriage for both. The couple is survived by seven children.
CHP officials closed all northbound lanes of the highway for nearly seven hours hours while they investigated the crash.
