Famed "A Beautiful Mind" John Nash and Wife Killed in Car Crash

http://www.businessinsider.com/a-bea...r-crash-2015-5

Famed mathematician John Nash and his wife Alicia Nash were killed Saturday in a taxi crash on the New Jersey Turnpike, NJ.com reports.
Nash, a Princeton University mathematics professor, won the Nobel Prize for economics in 1994 for his work in game theory, specifically the "Nash equilibrium."

Nash's battle with paranoid schizophrenia was documented in Sylvia Nasar's bestselling 1998 biography of Nash titled "A Beautiful Mind," and the 2001 Academy Award best picture winning film of the same name.

"For the better part of 20 years, his once supremely rational mind was beset by delusions and hallucinations," The Washington Post reports. "By the time Dr. Nash emerged from his disturbed state, his ideas had influenced economics, foreign affairs, politics, biology — virtually every sphere of life fueled by competition."

You can read the first chapter of Naser's biography of Nash at The New York Times.

Actor Russell Crowe, who was nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of Nash in the film "A Beautiful Mind".

John Nash was 86 years old, and Alicia Nash was 82 years old, according to NJ.com. They were first married in 1957.

The couple lived in Princeton, New Jersey and were returning home from a trip to Norway, NJ.com reports, where Nash received the Abel Prize for mathematics for his work on nonlinear partial differential equations.

"Their vehicle was struck by the driver of a Crown Victoria heading in the opposite direction of their taxi. The officer on scene Sgt. Gregory Williams says, "The driver of the Ford Crown Victoria lost control as he tried to pass a Chrysler in the center lane, crashing into a guard rail. The Nashes were ejected from the car."


(I was unable to find any gore or photos of the crash...I'll keep digging, but please contribute if you can!)

Such a shame. They were both so young.

They both went out together. There's always a positive in a negative.
