60 Minutes’ Bob Simon Has Died In A Car Accident In New York At Age 73

73-year-old CBS News reporter Bob late Wednesday night in New after being involved in a car .

The 60 correspondent was reportedly in a taxi when his vehicle collided with another car before crashing into the middle barrier of a Manhattan highway.

Bob was taken from the scene, but later died of cardiac arrest at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital.

Bob had apart of 60 Minutes since 1996, but that’s not even where his legacy ends with the news organization; his daughter Tanya is currently a producer there as well.

During his impressive journalism career, Bob won an astounding 24 Emmy Awards, and we cannot even begin to imagine what his family and all of his colleagues over at CBS are going through at this time.

Rest in peace, Bob.

How Many Times Did This Woman Get Catcalled Just For Walking Around New York City??

Well stinks.

It’s actually crazy how much unsettling footage she got in just ten hours.

The video was made to support Hollaback, a non-profit that aims to end street harassment, and we’d say it certainly got its message out!
