Sportscaster’s daughter victim of fatal crash

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The daughter of a popular television sportscaster was killed in a traffic accident near Hilliard Tuesday night.

Maria Elizabeth Tiberi, 21, of Dublin, died after her car struck the rear of a tractor-trailer stopped in heavy traffic on I-270 near Cemetery Road at approximately 10:46 p.m, Hilliard police officer Hyda Slone said.

Tiberi is the daughter of WBNS 10-TV sportscaster Dom Tiberi.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Dom and his family,” said a post on the station’s website.

Slone says the initial investigation indicates that the semi-tractor trailer was stopped in heavy traffic in the southbound lanes of the interstate when Tiberi’s Toyota Corolla struck it from the rear. She was transported to Grant Medical Center and later died.

The 30 year old female semi driver was not injured, Slone said.

The crash is still under investigation by the Hilliard Division of Police.

Maria Tiberi was a graduate of Dublin Coffman High School and a student at The Ohio State University, according to the WBNS-TV website. “She leaves behind her parents, brother, sister along with a large extended family and many friends,” the website post said.
