    NEW YORK -- Bob Simon, the longtime "60 Minutes" correspondent and legendary CBS News foreign reporter died suddenly Wednesday night in a car accident in New York City.

    The award-winning newsman was 73.

    "Bob Simon was a giant of broadcast journalism, and a dear friend to everyone in the CBS News family. We are all shocked by this tragic, sudden loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bob's extended family and especially with our colleague Tanya Simon," said CBS News President David Rhodes.

    "It's a terrible loss for all of us at CBS News," 60 Minutes Executive Producer Jeff Fager said in a statement. "It is such a tragedy made worse because we lost him in a car accident, a man who has escaped more difficult situations than almost any journalist in modern times.

    Knowing how paranoid Howard is, and the fact that Simon died in a Town Car, will he now demand Ronnie drive him around in a tank?o_O

    Good way to go. Fast and no long term suffering from a disease.
    Loved this guy on 60 minutes. He was a really good reporter.

    Not wearing his seat belt. Did you see the car? I don't think it would have mattered.

    That's after they peel the roof off to get to the victim. They often look like that. I'd have to doubt a passenger in a towncar/limo would be belted, at least from what you see on TV!

    I wonder if he was one of the correspondents over in 'nam telling Americans how we "lost" the Tet Offensive.
