Remembering the many athletes sports lost way too soon.

The daughter of Penn State men's soccer coach Bob Warming died in a car crash over the weekend, The Daily Collegian reported Tuesday.

Police said Audrey Warming, 21, was driving the wrong way on a highway exit ramp near Pittsburgh Sunday morning when her car struck another vehicle head-on at around 2:00am local time.

She was later pronounced dead at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Mercy Hospital, according to the student newspaper's report.

No other details on the crash have been released.

"On behalf of everyone in Penn State Athletics, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to Bob and Cindy Warming on the tragic loss of their daughter, Audrey," acting Penn State athletics director Dave Joyner said in the statement.

Bob Warming became the Penn State men's soccer coach in 2010 after holding the same position at Creighton University from 2001-2009. He began his coaching career in 1976 at Transylvania University in Kentucky.

Bob and Cindy Warming have three other children. Audrey Warming's twin brother Grant is a junior midfielder on the current Nittany Lions' roster.
