Nobel Prize-winning mathematician, John Nash, and his wife were killed in a car accident in New Jersey last week, according to Discovery News. Nash, whose work included contributions to game theory, or the process of decision-making, was the inspiration behind the Oscar-winning movie, “A Beautiful Mind.” He won the Nobel Prize in 1994, and earlier this month, received Norway’s Abel Prize with another mathematician. Nash and his wife were riding a taxicab on the New Jersey Turpike near the township of Monroe at the time of the crash. The driver attempted to pass another vehicle and lost control. Nash and his wife may not have been wearing seat belts and were ejected from the vehicle. The driver of the taxi was airlifted to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries and a passenger from another car was hospitalized for neck and back pain.
