EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo is offering condolences to the family of two people who were killed in a crash that involved the team’s strength coach.

Monroe County authorities say a pickup truck driven by Todd Moyer struck the rear of a car Friday on U.S. 23 in southeastern Michigan. Gladys Johnson and her 5-year-old daughter were killed. At least two more cars were involved in the crash.

Alcohol wasn’t a factor. Seat belts were used.

Izzo says he “can’t imagine the pain” of the victim’s family. Moyer’s status with the team hasn’t changed, although Izzo says he’s “monitoring the situation.” The sheriff’s office is investigating the crash.

The 37-year-old Moyer couldn’t be reached for comment Monday. A phone number isn’t listed.
