    60 Minutes’ Bob Simon killed in car crash
    By Larry Celona and C.J. Sullivan

    February 11, 2015 | 9:24pm

    Veteran “60 Minutes” correspondent Bob Simon was killed when his livery cab crashed on the West Side Highway in Manhattan Wednesday night, sources said.

    The CBS reporter died when the Lincoln Town Car he was riding in crashed with a Mercedes and then lost control and plowed into a pedestrian expansion near 30th Street at about 7 p.m., according to sources.

    The driver of the Mercedes said the livery driver was driving erratically.

    “He swerved into me,” the driver said. “He hit me and he looked like he lost control of the car.”

    Simon was taken to St.Luke’s where he died.

    The former war correspondent joined 60 Minutes in 1996.

    Holy shit. I always thought how old that guy looked. Never expected him to go like this. And who would think that such a big Ass Car would have a fatality like that. Sad.

    That new 25 mph speed limit isn't helping.

    25 mph in NYC. Can you believe it?
