Report: Daughter of Wisconsin assistant coach Moore dies in car crash

Report: Daughter of Wisconsin assistant coach Moore dies in car crash University of Wisconsin men’s basketball assistant Howard Moore, his wife and two children were involved in tragic, head-on collision in Michigan early Saturday morning. According to reports: A vehicle driven by a 23-year-old woman was going the wrong way on M-14 early Saturday morning and caused a multiple-vehicle crash that resulted in two fatalities. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, along with a female child in Moore’s vehicle. Moore, his wife Jennifer and their son Jerrell survived. But their daughter Jaidyn was killed in the crash.

The agency did not say what type of photos she was taking, but did urge others to use extra caution while taking pictures. "This is a sad reminder to be cautious when taking selfies and other photos in dangerous areas," the fire protection district said. "Don't under estimate the power of water falls, rivers and cold water temperatures."

The Tahoe Truckee Regional Rescue Team, a multi-agency organization, responded to the falls to recover the woman’s body, the fire Protection District said.

The statement does not indicated what time the woman fell, but a notice was posted to the fire protection district's social media accounts Friday evening. At that time the agency also urged people to avoid the area as emergency personnel were investigating.
