Author Michael Lewis mourns death of daughter and her boyfriend

The teenage daughter of “Moneyball” author Michael Lewis and former MTV reporter Tabitha Soren, and her boyfriend, died this week in a head-on vehicle collision on a highway in Truckee, Calif. 

Dixie Lewis, 19, and Ross Schultz, 20, were reportedly traveling northbound on State Route 89 near Lake Tahoe when the 2014 Ford Fusion they were riding in collided with a Freightliner, California Highway Patrol (CHP) told Berkeleyside, which first reported the tragedy on Thursday.

Lewis and Schultz were each pronounced dead at the scene of the crash which occurred around 3:20 p.m. local time.

The pair were both athletes who had recently graduated from Berkeley High School in 2020 and Lewis had just wrapped up her freshman year at Pomona College, where she was a member of the softball team. Meanwhile, Schultz had just finished his second year at Cal Poly Pomona, where he studied kinesiology.
