Bing Crosby’s widow, current husband involved in crash

Kathryn Crosby, the widow of famed crooner Bing Crosby, suffered major injuries after she was involved in a fatal solo vehicle crash last month that left her husband dead.

Crosby, 77, and husband Maurice William Sullivan, 85, were traveling on westbound Highway 50 when their vehicle left the roadway and struck a boulder at Wrights Lake Road some 30 miles east of Placerville, said California Highway Patrol officer Dan Stark.

The accident occurred shortly before 4 p.m. on Nov. 4, but news of the crash was first reported by the Associated Press late last week.

Sullivan was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Stark.

Crosby suffered major injuries and was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno.

Stark did not know her current status, but news outlets have reported that she has been discharged.

The cause of the accident is still being investigated, said Stark.

Kathryn and Bing Crosby were married in 1957 and remained together until the singer’s death in 1977 at the age of 74. The couple had three children together.

Kathryn Crosby, born Olive Kathryn Grandstaff, has penned several memoirs including “Bing and Other Things,” “My Life With Bing” and “My Last Years With Bing.” She also appeared on her husband’s sitcom, The Bing Crosby Show.
